All scientific data collected by the Australian Antarctic program (AAp) are eventually described in the Catalogue of Australian Antarctic and Subantarctic Metadata (CAASM). CAASM can be used to search through AAp data descriptions, and it also provides links to access publicly available datasets, which can either be immediately downloaded or obtained from the Australian Antarctic Data Centre (AADC).
Underwater video samples were obtained from the Deep Underwater Camera II (DUCII) system. Data are in mpeg video format.
Samples were named by:
1. CEAMARC site (e.g. 16)
2. Instrument (e.g. camera = CAM)
3. Sequence of deployments through the survey overall (e.g. first deployment = 01; second deployment = 02) e.g. 09CAM05 is the fifth camera deployment of the survey overall, and was at CEAMARC site 09.
15 second logging of seabed geology and biology (species, class, order, whatever is significant for the habitat) directly into GNAV software for overlay into a GIS.
Data quality are good for all video records.
Excel spreadsheets detailing the video samples are available for download from the provided URL. A paper detailing the data is also available, but only to AAD personnel.
The video files are too large to be downloaded, and are available on request from the AADC.
