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).
All-sky images taken from the Cloud-Cam instrument on the RSV Aurora Australis during the K-Axis campaign between 22-Jan-2016 and 16-Feb-2016 [days 22 to 47]. Images were acquired at 1-minute cadence, and are presented as timelapse movies analysed for cloud fraction, and keograms (obtained by horizontally accumulating a vertical slice through the zenith pixel of each image).
