Brief description

This collection includes observations transmitted in near real-time from the National Reference Station moorings near Darwin, in the Northern Territory (NRSDAR), and near the Yongala Wreck, in the central Great Barrier Reef (NRSYON). The observations include meteorological parameters, radiation at the surface, waves, currents, and physical and biogeochemical properties of sea water. The National Reference Station network is designed to provide baseline information, at timescales relevant to human response, that is required to understand how large-scale, long-term change and variability in the global ocean are affecting the ecosystems of Australia's coastal seas. The stations are operated by the Australian National Moorings Network (ANMN), a facility of the Integrated Marine Observing System (IMOS).

Australia’s Integrated Marine Observing System (IMOS) is enabled by the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS). It is operated by a consortium of institutions as an unincorporated joint venture, with the University of Tasmania as Lead Agent.

NATIONAL REFERENCE STATIONS The IMOS national reference stations will extend the number of long term time series observations in Australian coastal waters in terms of variables recorded both in their temporal distribution and geographical extent. It will also provide for biological, physical and chemical sampling and for 'ground truth' of remotely sensed observations. Currently there are only 3 long term reference stations and these would be extended to 9 distributed around the continent. At each coastal reference station a mooring will be deployed with sensors for conductivity, temperature, depth, fluorescence, dissolved oxygen, photo-synthetically available radiation (PAR), fluorescence and measurement of turbidity at three depths - the surface, seabed and an intermediate depth. At the seafloor Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (ADCP) will be deployed. All reference stations will telemeter a reduced data set via Iridium satellite for real-time monitoring.
