  • This record describes multibeam echosounder data collected on Bluefin voyage BF2018_V01, 'Hydrographic survey of the Petuna Aquaculture Sites in SW Bass Strait' which departed Stanley, Tasmania on the 27th June 2018 and returned to Beauty Point, Tasmania on the 4th July 2018. This survey was a part of a broader mapping campaign that involved a survey of the Boags Commonwealth Marine Reserve. The Kongsberg EM2040c multibeam echosounder was used to acquire seafloor bathymetry and backscatter information and watercolumn backscatter at the Boags Marine Reserve in the Bass Strait. The EM2040c provides a 1.3° by 1.3° transmit and receive angular resolution respectively. The echosounder's nominal frequency was 300 kHz and was operated in dual swath mode. Data are stored in *.all raw format for bathymetry and backscatter and *.wcd format for watercolumn backscatter at CSIRO. There are 269 files totalling 73.6 GB of raw .all data, and 269 files totalling 0.64Tb of raw .wcd in this combined campaign dataset. Sound velocity profiles were applied to this data during data acquisition. Bathymetry data contained in *.all format are corrected for motion and position. Tide corrections were not applied to the final processed dataset. Instead the data was mapped to the ellipsoid (GPS Height) and thereafter reduced to AHD (Australian Height Datum) using the AusGeoid09 model. Processed data has had outliers removed. Processed line data are available in *.gsf and ascii format, and processed bathymetry and backscatter grids in geotiff format. Additional information regarding this dataset, including further information on processing streams, is contained in the GSM data acquisition and processing reports.

  • This record describes multibeam echosounder data collected from the Marine National Facility (MNF) RV Investigator Voyage IN2020_V01, titled: “Development of William’s Ridge, Kerguelen Plateau: tectonics, hotspot magmatism, microcontinents, and Australia’s Extended Continental Shelf” between January 08 and March 06, 2020 departing from Henderson (WA) and returning back to Fremantle (WA). The Kongsberg EM122 multibeam echosounder was used to acquire seafloor bathymetry, backscatter information and watercolumn backscatter at Rig Seismic Seamount, Williams Ridge, Broken Ridge and on associated transits. The EM122 provides a 1 degree by 1 degree angular resolution. The echosounder's nominal frequency is 12 kHz. Data are stored in *.all raw format for bathymetry and backscatter and *.wcd format for watercolumn backscatter at CSIRO. There are 2164 files totalling 174 GB of raw data in this dataset. Sound velocity profiles were applied to this data during data acquisition. Bathymetry data contained in *.all format are corrected for motion and position. Tide corrections were not applied to the processed data. Processed data had outliers removed. Processed line data are available in *.gsf and ascii format, and processed bathymetry and backscatter grids in geotiff format. Additional information regarding this dataset, including information on processing streams, is contained in the GSM data acquisition and processing report.

  • This record describes scientific split-beam echosounder data collected on the RV Investigator voyage IN2021_V01, "Quantifying krill abundance for krill monitoring and management off the Australian Antarctic Territory", which departed Hobart on the 29th January 2021 and returned to Hobart on the 24th March 2021 (AEST). The Simrad EK80 split beam echosounders 18, 38, 70 120, 200 and 333 kHz were used to acquire acoustic backscatter data to a maximum range of 1500 m between Hobart and near Mawson station, Antarctica. All frequencies were logged continuously for the extent of the voyage. Acquisition settings (pulse length, power) were varied for the transit and survey portions of the voyage according to science requirements. Specific settings for each time period can be obtained from the GSM voyage report. From 1 Feb, 2021 the 18kHz WBT was replaced with the 18kHz GPT which was run for the remainder of the voyage. A calibration was performed at the survey location on 13 Feb 2021. Data are stored in *.raw, *.bot and *.idx format at CSIRO. There are 3192 files totalling 295 GB of raw data in this dataset. No processing has been conducted on this data. Additional information regarding this dataset is contained in the GSM data acquisition and processing report. Additional data products may be available on request.

  • This record describes multibeam echosounder data collected on RV Investigator voyage IN2018_C01, 'RAN Hydrographic Survey' which departed Hobart on the 28th May 2018 and returned to Hobart on the 8th June 2018. The overall focus for this survey was to conduct a modern survey in the primary shipping route through Bass Strait and to To facilitate safe navigation for international and coastal shipping. The Kongsberg EM710 MKII multibeam echosounder was used to acquire seafloor bathymetry and backscatter information (and watercolumn backscatter) near Wilson's Promontory in Bass Strait and during the transit from and to Hobart. The EM710 MKII provides a 0.5° by 1° transmit and receive angular resolution respectively. The echosounder's nominal frequency range is from 40 to 100 kHz. Data are stored in *.all raw format for bathymetry and backscatter and *.wcd format for watercolumn backscatter at CSIRO. There are 372 files totalling 119 GB of raw bathymetry & backscatter data, and 241 files totalling 269 GB of raw watercolumn data in this dataset. Sound velocity profiles were applied to this data during data acquisition. Bathymetry data contained in *.all format are corrected for motion and position. Tide corrections were applied to the processed data. Processed data has had outliers removed. Processed line data are available in *.gsf and ascii format, and processed bathymetry and backscatter grids in geotiff format. Additional information regarding this dataset, including further information on processing streams, is contained in the GSM data acquisition and processing report.

  • As part of the Pilbara Marine Conservation Partnership (PMCP), coral reef surveys of reef macroalgae species (including seagrasses) were undertaken between northern Ningaloo and the Dampier Archipelago. This dataset contains biomass estimates (g DW m-2 and g WW m-2) of macrophytes collected in shallow reef areas in the Pilbara region during two sampling trips: November 2013 and May 2014. Surveys were undertaken using using SCUBA at depths between 2-13m, with macroalgae and seagrasses identified to the lowest possible taxonomic level. The data include: * Macroalgae and seagrass diversity (0.25 square metre quadrats) * Macroalgae and seagrass species composition and biomass per quadrat (0.25 square metre) These data were collected to estimate macrophyte biomass in shallow reef areas across the Pilbara region in two contrasting seasons. These data are an output of the Pilbara Marine Conservation Partnership (PMCP) Coral Reef Health Theme.

    Satellite altimeter data from the radar altimeter on board the joint France/US Jason-1 Mission, comprising Global (66S -> 66N) sea surface height anomalies along ground tracks which are repeated every 10 days. The dataset is approximately 622 Mb and the period covered is January 2002 to January 2004. The data was provided by JPL/NASA in the USA and has been processed at CSIRO Marine Research in Hobart to a uniform grid spacing and format. Jason-1 is the follow-on mission to TOPEX/Poseidon. Available on-line on the CSIRO Marine Research network; also available to outside users on request.

    Farm A in Hashmi et al. (2002) was used to calibrate uptake for the modelled prawns, and the intent was to use Farm B to validate our model of uptake. The contaminants selected were lead, cadmium and copper. These contaminants were selected mainly because they were metals we were already considering to use in NWS-InVitro. Parameters were chosen for the uptake rates of the metals which gave rise to a profile comparable to that for the prawns taken from Farm A. The simulation was run for six years, during which time the contaminate output levels were held constant. Currents were held constant in hourly intervals, as were the plumes they advected and diffused. The simulation tracked the levels of contaminants in the water and in the prawns that passed through the region affected by the plume. A piecewise linear function was introduced to allow the rate of uptake to vary in a controlled way. With much validation, the model provides the best available representation of contaminant impacts on prawns in Nickol Bay. This facilitated relatively straightforward reproduction of the uptake of contaminants. Abstract extracted from detailed documentation
