The data in csv format is available for download as a single zip file from a Related URL. The data in raw SIMRAD format are stored offline in the Australian Antarctic Data Centre (AADC) as multiple zip files due to the large size of these files. The data is available upon request to the AADC.

Brief description

This dataset consists of underway data, including bathymetric data, collected aboard Australian Antarctic Division research vessels between 1985 and 2012. The data are available in csv format and the raw SIMRAD format. In the csv files bathymetric data is in the WTR_DEPTH_M column. Some voyages will not have bathymetric data associated with them.

The csv data may have been quality checked. Most of the underway data was quality checked ('dot zapped') up to and including voyage 4 2003/04. Data quality reports are available by searching at
http://data.aad.gov.au/aadc/voyages/

Other than on Marine Science voyages, the Aurora Australis bathymetric data gathering procedures prior to about 2000 were not checked during the voyage. The echo sounder was turned on in Hobart and if it stopped working during the voyage, then there was no one to get it going again.

Bathymetric data from these voyages that has been processed by the Royal Australian Navy is available via other metadata records linked to the parent record with ID AAD_voyage_soundings.
