This dataset contains the Underway (UWY) data collected on Southern Surveyor Transit ST 06/2007. The transit took place from Mackay to Newcastle 17 to 22 October 2007. This dataset has been processed and archived within the CSIRO Marine and Atmospheric Research Data Centre in Hobart. Additional information regarding this dataset is contained in the voyage plan and voyage summary (as available). The standard Underway (=continuously recorded) dataset from a research voyage includes Navigation (NAV), Sounder (PDR), Thermosalinograph (TSG) and Meteorological (MET) data. NAV data includes GPS (Global Positioning System) measurements of latitude, longitude, ship's direction and speed. MET data may include atmospheric temperature, humidity and pressure, wind speed and direction, and incident radiation intensity. Data are recorded at 10 second intervals.
Data source: original field data.
Data to be processed according to current CMAR data processing standards. Salinity and Water temperature data were rejected when the pump wasn't turned on at the start of the voyage. Up to 17-October-2007 00:14:40 The depth data was re picked using Sonar Data's echoview software.
