Project Overview: A range of solutions will be required to reach globally agreed emissions reductions targets for carbon dioxide (CO2). Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is part of the suite of technol... moreogies that will contribute to lowering atmospheric emissions of CO2 from Australia's energy system. There are a wide variety of technologies at various stages of technical and commercial readiness, with more development underway for cost effective CO2 capture and storage. Our research will provide new knowledge to inform cost-efficient measurement, monitoring and verification (MMV) of the environment of CCS projects in coastal waters.
This data was collected between the 8th May 2018 and the 12-14th November 2018 at the proposed site for subsea CCS off Golden Beach, Victoria.

Cameras were configured as per recommendations by SeaGIS
• Turn off image stabiliser (see Image stabilizer in the camera manual).
• Set the camera date and time (see Date and time in the camera manual).
• Check the camera is at the widest zoom setting (see zoom in the camera manual).
• Put the camera in manual focus and check the focus is correct (usually infinity). See Focus, manual in the camera manual.
• Select the image recording quality (see Recording mode in the camera manual).
• Put the camera in the ‘PF25’ frame rate (see Frame rate in the manual). There is no need to use the Cine Mode recording program – leave this as Programmed AE.
• If appropriate for the camera model, set the recording media (on board memory or memory card, see Selecting the memory).

This data collection contains behavioural and cortisol data for 28 Merino ewes. The study aimed to determine the impact of chronic stress on the emotional states of sheep, assessed through judgement b... moreias and attention bias tests. Stress was induced pharmacologically by administering Synacthen. Judgement bias was assessed during acute (one injection), chronic (21 daily injections) and acute-on-chronic (2 min isolation after 28 daily injections) stress. Attention bias was assessed during chronic stress only (22 daily injections). Cortisol responses were assessed on days 1 and 29 to confirm the effects of the Synacthen.less

Dugongs (Dugong dugon) are listed as vulnerable on the IUCN Red List of Threatened species and as other specially protected fauna in WA under Schedule 7 of the Wildlife Conservation (Specially Protect... moreed Fauna) Notice 2015). Gaps in our knowledge in Western Australia include having a good understanding of the species’ distribution, abundance and high use areas across the northwest.
This 3-year project (2014-2017) integrated Indigenous knowledge and scientific observations from field surveys to better understand the distribution, abundance and movements of dugong in the Kimberley region. The data collected also provides a baseline for future monitoring and management.
This medata record relates to raw and processed aerial survey data of marine fauna collected between 21st September 2015 and 8th October 2015 in Kimberley coastal waters to the 20m bathymetry line, comprising dugongs (Dugong dugon), Australian snubfin dolphins (Orcaella heinsohni), other dolphins (bottlenose, spinners, false killer whales), humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) and large, mostly green turtles (Chelonia mydas).
The WA Department of Biodiversity Conservation and Attractions (DBCA, ex-DPaW) and CSIRO provided additional resources to extend the North Kimberley dugong aerial survey boundary westwards (Broome to just past Port Hedland) to cover the South Kimberley-Pilbara coastal regions, to close the last remaining knowledge gap of the dugong distribution and abundance in Australia. This additional survey was completed in May 2017.
Data from a trial movement study undertaken between 1-18th August 2016 also forms part of this metadata record. Five dugongs were tagged with Telonics manatee/dugong tags. GPS and ARGOS satellite detection locations and dive data were downloaded weekly from the ARGOS web site.less
