  • This dataset contains the traditional and effective nitrate, phosphate, and silicate fluxes in Lombok, Ombai, and Timor passages, Indian Ocean. Fluxes are depth-resolved and cross-strait integrated, for the 2004-2006 time period of the INSTANT field program. In some cases depths extend below the functional sill depths, due to the moorings being in deeper water. Negative fluxes are westward, towards the Indian Ocean. Files are in self-describing netCDF format, as follows: (1) Traditional nutrient fluxes for Lombok Strait. (2) Effective nutrient fluxes for Lombok Strait. (3) Traditional nutrient fluxes for Ombai Strait. (4) Effective nutrient fluxes for Ombai Strait. (5) Traditional nutrient fluxes for Timor Passage. (6) Effective nutrient fluxes for Timor Passage.

    Trace element data collected from 18 stations near the Mertz Glacier on the 2019 ENRICH voyage. Sea water was collected using a 12-bottle trace metal rosette (TMR) and acidified for analysis back in Hobart. Samples were measured using an offline seaFAST pre-concentration system and Inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS) at the University of Tasmania. This data contributed to Smith et al., Circumpolar Deep Water and shelf sediments support late summer microbial iron remineralisation in Global Biogeochemical Cycles (2021).

  • An increasing number of studies are considering Fe and ligand concentrations, providing data of trace element availability across the remote Southern Ocean region (Ardiningsih et al., 2021, Gerringa et al., 2020, Hassler et al., 2017, Thuroczy et al., 2012, Thuroczy et al., 2011, Caprara et al., 2016 and references therein). However, studies seldom focus on polar coastal environments which are especially sensitive to climate-induced changes. To anticipate how these changes may impact Fe availability, we must first understand the drivers of ligand supply to the Antarctic coast and offshore. The newly compiled Southern Ocean Ligand (SOLt) Collection includes all publicly available Fe complexation datasets for the Southern Ocean including dissolved Fe concentrations, Fe-binding ligand concentrations, and complexation capacities for 25 studies between 1995 - 2019.

    These data are from a piggy back voyage to IN2018_V05, October-November 2018. The Chief Scientists were Helen Phillips and Nathan Bindoff. Nic Pittman and Clara Vives collected biogeochemical data on the voyage, and Xiang Yang used these data in his Hons thesis 2020-2021. The purpose of the study was to investigate biogeochemical variability in the region of the Polar Front meander south of Tasmania. Data include CTD nutrients, chlorophyll and oxygen as well as underway phytoplankton physiology and pCO2. Some data are duplicated but not in exactly the same format on the CSIRO Data Trawler.

  • Here, we hypothesize that Fe uptake rates by sea-ice algae and under-ice phytoplankton are higher than the rates reported for open ocean phytoplankton in the SO. We performed 55Fe and carbon (14C) short-term uptake field measurements in, on and under Antarctic sea ice. We collected under ice seawater, melted snow and sea-ice cores. We then spiked them with 14C or 55Fe radiotracers to measure Fe and C uptake rates by sea-ice algae. Samples were then filtered, and residual radioactivity on the filters measured liquid scintillation counter (Packard).

    Thorium-234 samples were collected to determine the particulate organic carbon (POC) export fluxes in two East Antarctica polynyas, Dalton and Mertz. The samples were collected along the water column using the CTD deployed at several stations. The seawater Th-234 data was used in combination with POC:234Th ratios obtained from particulate samples collected using in situ pumps in order to derive the POC fluxes. This record describes Th-234 and U-238_data: sample ID, depth, CTD file, station ID, latitude and longitude, Th-234 concentration and its uncertainty, U-238 concentration and its uncertainty. See linked record for associated POC data from Aurora Australis Voyage 2 2016/17.

    This repository contains data files (netCDF format) related to the model configuration developed and used by Joan Llort between 2011 and 2019. The model is a 1D configuration based on PISCES v1 and the specific routines and namelist are here: The data in this repository is organised in two groups: - The first group contains the forcing files used to create and idealised representation of Southern Ocean water columns. Forcing files were automatically modified to force PISCES models with different mixed layer depth and iron environments. The files presented here are for a single water column but they can be modified using the python routines in the GitHub link above. - The second group contains the outputs for one of the experiments. We studied the impact of changes in ferricilne, winter mixed layer and summer mixed layer depths over Southern Ocean primary production.

  • During the RV Investigator Eddy voyage (IN2016_V02), we sampled a mesoscale cyclonic and anticyclonic eddy in the Southern Ocean south to Tasmania. We have collected water samples to analyse concentration of phytoplankton biomass and nutrients.

  • This data is primarily benthic invertebrate community information including species abundance & distribution collected by diver coring/grab. Spatial information is available for Huon Estuary and Tasman Peninsula (Nubeena) sites. Associated physical chemical parameters (sediment grain size, redox, sulphide, depth) were also collected and, in most cases, includes spatial GPS references.
