Title: Aurora Australis Voyage 2 2011/12 Track and Underway Data
On every voyage of the Aurora Australis, approximately 50 onboard sensors collect data on average every 10 seconds. These
data are known as the underway datasets. The type of data collected include water and air temperature, wind speeds, ship
speed and location, humidity, fluorescence, salinity and so on. For the full list of available data types, see the website.
These data are broadcast "live" (every 30 minutes) back to Australia and are available via the Australian Oceanographic Data
Centre's portal (see the provided link). Once the ship returns to port, the data are then transferred to Australian Antarctic
Division servers where they are then made available via the Marine Science Data Search system (see the provided URL).
This dataset contains the underway data collected during Voyage 2 of the Aurora Australis Voyage in the 2011/12 season.
