K-Axis Science Event Log - not Quality Controlled
Entry ID: AAS_4344_K-AXIS_Science_Event_Log_nonQC_1

[Get Data]


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 direct digital copy/transcription of the paper logbook.

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 discover what types of data were collected at each location during the voyage for collaboration purposes, and a backbone reference log for ecological studies.
