K-Axis Science Event Log - scanned copy of paper original
Entry ID: AAS_4344_K-AXIS_Science_Event_Log_Scanned


Summary
Abstract: During the K-Axis marine voyage from mid Jan-late Feb 2016, a diverse range of sampling techniques were employed to collect specimens and data. Each sampling event was recorded by scientists and technical support staff in a logbook that was kept in the operations room on board the Aurora Australis. This is a PDF of the scanned original document, compiled on paper during the voyage.

Purpose: The science event log is a record of the date, time, location, event code (assigned by projects) and if relevant the K-Axis station number where every science sampling event occurred. It is a reference point for scientists to disover what types of data were collected at each location during the voyage for collaboration purposes, and a backbone reference log for ecological studies. The scanned copy of the log supplements the digitised version, also available and is intended for the use of researchers who want to check the original handwritten document.

Quality This is a scanned copy of the original paper document compiled during the voyage. Some handwritten information is difficult to decipher. There are uncorrected errors in lat/lon/time/sample event code. This is a back-up information source - it's expected that researchers will generally refer to digitised versions of this document.
