A database of Scientific Voyages of the Australian Antarctic Programme.Entry ID: DB_Voyages
Abstract: A register of all voyages that contribute to the science of the Australian Antarctic Programme. It includes voyages that opportunistically collect marine data while underway.
Details have been gleaned from historic paper records, publications, voyage situation reports and reports from marine science cruises.
Products linked to each voyage include a map, voyage schedule and a list of any science ... related activities on the voyage.
The application links to various external resources within the Antarctic Division such as daily shipping reports, passenger lists and various sets of data.
NOTE - Support for this application was put "on hold" after the 2013/2014 season.
Hence, only voyages up until that season are included in the database. This decision may be revisited at some time in the future.
