BANZARE ship logs and station listsEntry ID: BANZARE_logs
Abstract: The British Australian (and) New Zealand Antarctic Research Expedition (BANZARE) was a research expedition into Antarctica between 1929 and 1931, involving two voyages over consecutive Austral summers.
This document describes the ship's log and station list taken from
Biological Organisation and Station List by T. Harvey Johnston, BANZARE Reports, Series B, Vol I, Part 1, pages 1-48
Data are ... stored in an Access database.
The 5 tables are
banzare_noon_log_1929_1930 and banzare_noon_log_1930_1931
noon positions from page 46-47 - assumed log_date is local noon, latitude and longitude in decimals.
banzare_stations_1929_1930 and banzare_stations_1930_1931
odate is station date (no time is given)
depth is echo depth (metres)
latg and long is refined positions using Google Earth and Kerguelen map on page 14
log of full sped nets - see pages 40-44;
time is possibly UTC
distance is travel of ship when net is deployed
depth is possible depth of net in fathoms
tow_speed is ship speed in knots
