A selection of photographs from those taken by Stanley Fowler (1895-1961).
With the co-operation of the Royal Australian Air Force, in 1936-39 and 1942-46 he undertook a series of aerial observations ... moreof pelagic stock in coastal waters. His photographs number over 10,000.
This collection includes photographs of landforms, coastal areas, vessels, equipment and people from South Australia, Queensland, Victoria, Tasmania and Flinders Island. It also includes photographs of the research vessel, "Warreen", in which the C.S.I.R.'s decision to purchase Fowler had been instrumental.less

These products are derived from disaggregation of legacy soil mapping in the agricultural zone of South Australia using the DSMART tool (Odgers et al. 2014a); produced for the Soil and Landscape Grid ... moreof Australia Facility. There are 10 soil attribute products available from the Soil Facility: Available Water Capacity (AWC); Bulk Density - Whole Earth (BDw); Cation Exchange Capacity (CEC); Clay (CLY); Coarse Fragments (CFG); Electrical Conductivity (ECD); Organic Carbon (SOC); pH - CaCl2( pHc); Sand (SND); Silt (SLT).
Each soil attribute product is a collection of 6 depth slices (except for effective depth and total depth). Each depth raster has an upper and lower uncertainty limit raster associated with it. The depths provided are 0-5cm, 5-15cm, 15-30cm, 30-60cm, 60-100cm & 100-200cm, consistent with the specifications of the GlobalSoilMap.
The DSMART tool was used in a downscaling process to translate legacy soil landscape mapping to 3” resolution (approx. 100m cell size) raster predictions of soil classes and corresponding soil properties. Legacy mapping was performed at 1:50,000 and 1:100,000 scales to delineate associated soils within polygons however individual soils were not explicitly spatially defined. These new disaggregated map products aim to incorporate expert soil surveyor knowledge embodied in legacy polygon soil maps, while providing re-interpreted soil spatial information at a scale that is more suited to on-ground decision making.
Note: The DSMART-derived dissagregated legacy soil mapping products provide different spatial predictions of soil properties to the national TERN Soil Grid products derived by Cubist (data mining) kriging based on site data by Viscarra Rossel et al. (2014). Where they overlap, the national prediction layers and DSMART products can be considered complementary predictions. They will offer varying spatial reliability (/ uncertainty) depending on the availability of representative site data (for national predictions) and the scale and expertise of legacy mapping. The national predictions and DSMART disaggregated layers have also been merged as a means to present the best available (lowest statistical uncertainty) data from both products (Clifford et al. 2014).
Previous versions of this collection contained Depths layers. These have been removed as the units do not comply with Global Soil Map specifications.less

This data is a spreadsheet of label data of specimens from the flower beetle genus Navigator which were inspected in collections. The paper which uses this data (and a link to the data is provided, in... morecluding DOI) is "Navigator, a new endemic genus of Cetoniinae (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae: Schizorhinini) from Australia with description of two new species, and behavioural studies", authors: Christian Moeseneder (CSIRO) and Paul Hutchinson (DAFWA). Abstract: The endemic and atypical flower beetle genus Navigator new genus is described from Australia. Navigator gen. n. is placed in the tribe Schizorhinini, it is compared to the most closely related Australian schizorhinine genera and species, and a key to its species is provided. Pseudoclithria fossor Lea 1914 and Pseudoclithria ruficornis (Westwood 1874) are moved to the genus Navigator gen. n., resulting in Navigator fossor new combination, for which we designate a lectotype and which is designated as the type species, and Navigator ruficornis new combination. We describe Navigator interior new species, from Central Australia and Navigator pixii new species, which occurs in Queensland and is the smallest Australian Schizorhinini known at this time. Distribution information for all Navigator species is provided. Our observations of Navigator fossor comb. n. and Navigator pixii sp. n. show their larvae are free-living in soil and feed on decaying leaves–the first time such behaviour is described in Australian cetoniines. We observe that three Navigator gen. n. species are more tolerant of arid climate than most other Australian cetoniines, adults almost never visit flowers, and males are often in flight searching for sedentary females.less
