Quality
See Readme file ... data collected as header, calibration information, and data files. Instrument has been calibrated against main CTD rosette on Aurora Australis ship during voyage home, and pre-calibrated in CSIRO Marine Lab Hobart prior to deployment.

Altitudes presented in spatial coverage are "above sea level" (asl). Depths represent an approximately 700-1300 m sub-shelf ocean cavity.
