Brief description

AUV Sirius (IMOS Platform code: SIRIUS) was deployed in the Great Barrier Reef in February 2011.

In the Great Barrier Reef the program is focused on seagrass beds in the middle of the GBR lagoon to understand how their abundance is affected by upwelling coming through the Magnetic and Palm Passages and on deepwater coral reefs on the outer GBR. Although there is extensive monitoring of shallow water reefs along the extent of the GBR, there has been relatively little opportunity to monitor deeper reefs. Understanding the nature of these deepwater reefs may provide important insights into the resilience of the GBR to stresses such as changing temperatures, ocean acidification, cyclones and nutrient influx from the coast. Surveys of the seagrass beds in the lagoon, which were designed to revisit sites surveyed using towed video ten years ago, and at Myrmidon Reef on the outer GBR were completed during July 2011 to establish benthic reference sites in this area.

Lineage

The files in this folder form part of the data 'product'
from the IMOS AUV Facility Sirius AUV operated by the
University of Sydney's Australian Centre for Field
Robotics.

The directory contains a number of different file types. These
are listed below. The 'product' from each dive is contained in
it's own named folder.


*all_reports folder:-
This folder contains the PDF short dive report files, one
for each of the dives. These contain some summary graphs and
sample images.

*per_dive folder:-
-> i*_gtif (contains geotif versions of all images).
-> i*_subsampN (subsampled geotif images (one in N, and a csv of locations).
-> hydro_netcdf (*.nc files, netcdf files containing CT and ecopuck data).
-> track_files (dive track in csv, kml and arcgis shape file format).
-> mesh (3D reconstuction of the dive, needs OSG viewer software).
-> multibeam (a number of different versions of the multibeam product).
*.gsf: Navigated and automatically cleaned swath
bathymetry with raw intensity data.
Format specification 121 (SAIC Generic Sensor Format)
in mbsystem.
*.grd: Gridded bathymetry. NetCDF format as used
with GMT. Use grdinfo to determine resolution
and projection.
*.grd.pdf: Plotted gridded bathymetry (local northings and eastings)
acrobat PDF format.


Windows Viewers folder:-
This folder contains a copy of gqview a windows image viewer that is
able to view the geotiffs. These are standard tiff's but with jpg
compression, and the regular windos viewer will not open. Other more
capable windows programs including AcDsee (spelling???) also work.
Ultimately there should be a copy of the windows viewer for the meshes
but this is not yet here.
