Samples were collected on Macquarie Island from three sites: the main powerhouse, the fuel farm and a reference site on the isthmus by the Bioremediation Project team in January 2008. Soil characteristics including conductivity, pH, total petroleum hydrocarbons, total carbon, nitrate, nitrite, ammonium, fluoride, bromide, chloride, sulphate and phosphate were measured.
The data consists of two files, the rtf file contains the methods used and the csv file contains the soil characteristics. Samples are identified by a barcode which is the barcode number assigned by the Bioremediation Project Sample Tracking Database.
This work was carried out as part of AAS project 1163.
Temporal coverage is approximate: samples were collected during this time.
Spatial coverage is range for all samples, location of individual samples is available. Further information is available in the rtf file detailing the methods used in collecting and analysing these data.
