Aurora Australis Voyage 1 and 1.1 (WOCE91) 1991-92 Underway DataEntry ID: 199192010
Abstract: This dataset contains the underway data from Voyage 1 and 1.1 1991-92 (WOCE91) of the Aurora Australis. This was a marine science voyage, being the first WOCE SR3 transect from Tasmania to Dibble Ice Tongue and return. Voyage 1 went to Macquarie Island but returned with a broken winch. The program then resumed as Voyage 1.1. See the Marine Science Support Data Quality and Programmer's Reports via the Related URL section.

Where data for a particular sensor do not exist for a particular time, the last known value is used unless the sensor has been disabled or has encountered an error. For example, some sensors only record data every minute, but the resolution for the underway dataset is 10 seconds, so the same value will be used 6 times a minute. No averages are taken for sensors that capture data at a rate other than every 10 seconds. Instead, each record will be a snapshot of each sensor at that time.
