Summary
Abstract: Distribution, abundance and dates of relict Adelie Penguin colonies in the Australian Antarctic Territory (AAT).

Current mapping efforts have focused on the Windmill Islands in preparation for a PhD study to commence in 2004/05 with the two investigators.

The planned PhD study will work at either the Windmill Islands or the Vestfold Hills.

This project integrates ASAC projects 1219 and 1322 (ASAC_1219, ASAC_1322).

The fields in the excel spreadsheet are:

Radiocarbon Samples
Isotope Samples
Site - list of precise locations provided in the downloadable paper
Level - horizontal stratum (depth), given in 5cm blocks
Species
Material
Weight (g)
Notes
Lab no.
Uncorrected Date (BP) - (day)
Standard Deviation
Delta R - range of corrected date for sample, 2 standard deviations either side of the mean
Mean - estimated mean of sample date

See the paper included in the download file for further information.

Quality
Current dataset comprises maps and GPS data. Some maps date from the early 1960s. GPS data were collected in 2001/02 and 2002/03 summer seasons in the Windmill Islands.


Access Constraints
Maps were published by Richard Penny in 1966 with supplementary maps published in Woehler et al in 1991. GPS data have been deposited with the AADC.

An excel spreadsheet of radiocarbon analysis and isotopes is also included in the download file. Also included in the download file is a pdf copy of the Emslie and Woehler paper.
