This dataset contains the ichthyoplankton data from 3 National Reference Stations on the east coast of Australia (North Stradbroke Island, Port Hacking, and Maria Island), and comparable historical da... moreta from eight ichthyoplankton surveys that were used to provide a longer term context:
RV Sprightly (1983)
RV Challenger (1989-1991)
RV Franklin (1994)
RV Franklin (1997-1998)
RV Franklin (1998-1999)
RV Southern Surveyor (2004)
RV Investigator (2015)
FRV Kamala (1989-1993)
Refer to the published report which had the following goals:
- To evaluate the value of long-term monitoring of ichthyoplankton at selected locations in the Integrated Marine Observing System (IMOS) National Reference Station (NRS) network,
- To identify the potential of this monitoring for providing fishery-independent information relevant for marine fishes and their management.

Hydrographic data from six cruises, between April 1976 and March 1977 in the Gulf of Carpentaria are presented. Physical quantities (temperature, salinity and sigma-t) and chemical properties (dissolv... moreed oxygen, nitrate and silicate) were measured, and are presented in an associated report both as values at the stations and as contour maps - see the link in the related materials section to the report:
Rothlisberg P., White N.J. & Forbes A.M.G. (1989). Hydrographic Atlas of the Gulf of Carpentaria. CSIRO Marine Laboratories Report No. 209.
These cruises began in 1975 with the initiation of the CSIRO Tropical Prawn Research Project, a new series of Gulf-wide cruises undertaken to study the larval ecology of penaeid prawns.
Approximately 70 stations were occupied on each cruise (with the exception of KL 7/76 which made only three transects in the southern Gulf). Two types of hydrographic stations were undertaken. Type 'A' stations consisted of Nansen casts with bottles every 10m from the surface to the bottom, sampling temperature, salinity, oxygen, nitrate plus nitrite, nitrogen and silicate. Type 'B' stations were Nansen casts with three bottles (at the surface, at 10m depth and within 10m of the bottom) sampling the same parameters as the Type 'A' stations. The sigma-t values were calculated from the temperature and salinity values, and the percentage of oxygen saturation was calculated from the oxygen concentration, temperature and salinity data. The difference between surface and bottom values was also calculated for all properties.
The six cruises included:
KL 4/76 April 1976
KL 7/76 June 1976
KL 9/76 September 1976

This data contains information about the distribution of seagrass around the Australian coastline. It was prepared by Dr. Hugh Kirkman (CSIRO Division of Fisheries) from a review of published and unpu... moreblished sources, and updated by Dr. Ian Hahmdorf, (Bureau of Rural Sciences).
External accuracy: +/- one degree. Some polygons are on land.
Non Quantitative accuracy: Sources of data are presumed to be from references shown in the reference list. Vectors are not labelled with a code to indicate the original source.
Conceptual consistency: Coverages are topologically consistent. No particular tests conducted by ERIN.
Completeness omission: Complete for the Australian continent.less
