Underwater video footage from voyage 4 of the Aurora Australis, 2003-2004
Entry ID: underwater_video_V40304

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: Underwater footage was taken with a Sony digital Handycam mounted in a pressure case on a roll cage, and then trawled off the back of the Aurora Australis. The footage was taken primarily of benthic habitats, and was done on an opportunistic basis, rather than part of a systematic trawling survey.

Most of the footage was taken within the Heard Island Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), but some footage was also taken between Mawson and Davis off the Antarctic continent.
