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).

Description

10 full depth CTD casts were taken in the vicinity of Mawson and Casey as part of the geoscience work on Aurora Australis cruise au9705, January to March 1997. A 12 bottle rosette sampler was used to collect salinity samples only, for calibration of CTD data.

The fields in this dataset are:
oceanography
ship
station number
date
start time
bottom time
finish time
cruise
start position
bottom position
finish position
maximum position
bottom depth
pressure
sigma-T
specific volume anomaly
geopotential anomaly
temperature (C) (ITS-90)
salinity (PSS78)
density-1000 (kg.m-3)
specific volume anomaly x 108
geopotential anomaly
dissolved oxygen (mmol.l-1)
number of data points used in the 2 dbar averaging bin
standard deviation of temperature values in the 2 dbar bin
standard deviation of conductivity values in the 2 dbar bin
station number
CTD pressure (dbar)
CTD temperature (oC) (ITS-90)
reversing thermometer temperature (C)
CTD conductivity (mS.cm-1)
CTD salinity (PSS78)
bottle salinity (PSS78)
bottle quality flag (-1=rejected, 0=suspect, 1=good)
niskin bottle number
