Abstract: Sediment Recruitment Experiment 4 (SRE4) was a large, long term (5 year) field experiment run at Casey Station (from 2001 to 2006) testing the effects of 4 different hydrocarbons on marine sediment ecosystems. Four different types of hydrocarbons were individually mixed with defaunated marine sediments and deployed in trays on the seabed at O'Brien Bay-1. Trays were collected after deployment ... periods of 5 weeks, 56 weeks, 62 weeks, 2 years and 5 years. In addition there was a bioturbation treatment using the burrowing urchin Abatus (at 56 weeks only). Samples were collected from 4 replicate trays of each treatment at each sampling time. Analyses were done of sediment hydrocarbon chemistry, microbial communities, meiofaunal communities, macrofaunal communities and diatom communities. The hydrocarbon treatments were: a synthetic Mobil lubricating oil; the same Mobil lubricating oil after 125? hours use in a vehicle engine; a Fuchs synthetic lubricating oil marketed as highly biodegradable; and Special Antarctic Blend diesel fuel (SAB). A control uncontaminated sediment treatment was used for comparison.
Purpose: To determine the effects of hydrocarbons on marine sediment ecosystems in Antarctica.

Quality The V5 Level 3 gridded products are derived from the Level 2 standard swath products. The Level 2 quality indicators determine which of the Level 2 Standard Product data are combined to create the Level 3 Product. It is important that the user of Level 3 Products become familiar with these quality indicators, and we urge the user to read the documentation describing the AIRS Level 2 Standard ... Products and the AIRS Level 2 Quality Control and Error Estimation for a description of the quality indicators, how they are set and how to use them.
As a general rule, Level 2 retrieved quantities whose quality indicators are “best” (=0) or “good” (=1) are included in the sums that generate the Level 3 product.
