RV Franklin 2/88 Post Cruise Project Data
The RV Franklin expedition (2/88) was conducted in early 1988 in the Gulf of Carpentaria. The Cruise summary provides full details on station locations, and samples collected. Other cruise details can be obtained obtained via the CSIRO Data Centre. Water samples were collected using a CTD rosette sampler equiped with 20 L Niskin bottles, with se... morediments by a Smith-MacIntyre grab. Experimental protocols for analyses undertaken are provided in the publlished AJMFR paper (see below).
Data herein include -
- Excel files of fatty acid data - S = sediments, P = particulates (obtained by filtration using glass fibre filters)
- PDF file of stable isotope data.
The data sets here are bigger than those in the published AJMFR paper.

Fatty acid profiles were generated by GC and GC analyses (see AJMFR paper). Isotope data was by mass spectrometer analyses.
