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

Refer to antFOCE report section 4.5.1 for deployment, sampling and analysis details.

https://data.aad.gov.au/metadata/records/AAS_4127_antFOCE_Project4127

The download file contains an Excel workbook with one data spreadsheet and one of notes relevant to the data. The data are the total number of each motile organism collected from 2 recruitment tiles deployed in chambers or open plots during the antFOCE experiment. The 2 tiles were deployed together in a metal stand in either a horizontal or vertical orientation.

Background

The antFOCE experimental system was deployed in O’Brien Bay, approximately 5 kilometres south of Casey station, East Antarctica, in the austral summer of 2014/15. Surface and sub-surface (in water below the sea ice) infrastructure allowed controlled manipulation of seawater pH levels (reduced by 0.4 pH units below ambient) in 2 chambers placed on the sea floor over natural benthic communities. Two control chambers (no pH manipulation) and two open plots (no chambers, no pH manipulation) were also sampled to compare to the pH manipulated (acidified) treatment chambers.

Details of the antFOCE experiment can be found in the report – “antFOCE 2014/15 – Experimental System, Deployment, Sampling and Analysis”. This report and a diagram indicating how the various antFOCE data sets relate to each other are available at:
