  • The Davis Coastal Seabed Mapping Survey, Antarctica (GA-4301 / AAS2201 / HI468) was acquired by the Australian Antarctic Division workboat Howard Burton during February-March 2010 as a component of Australian Antarctic Science (AAS) Project 2201 - Natural Variability and Human Induced Change on Antarctic Nearshore Marine Benthic Communities. The survey was undertaken as a collaboration between Geoscience Australia, the Australian Antarctic Division and the Australian Hydrographic Service (Royal Australian Navy). The objectives were to provide multibeam bathymetry and backscatter of the coastal region of the Vestfold Hills around Davis Station, Antarctica, to aid the understanding of sea bed character, benthic habitats, provide a basis for hydrodynamic modeling of water movement around Davis, and to update and extend the navigational charts of the region.

  • This is a compilation of all the processed single beam and multibeam data that are publicly released and that Geoscience Australia holds in its database for the WA Margins within the following area: Latitude -26 to -31South and Longitude 111 to 115.5 East.

  • The local Moran I grid calculates local autocorrelation of the bathymetry grid. It indicates local heterogeneity. The large and positive values represent positive autocorrelation or clumped pattern; the large negative values represent negative autocorrelation or checkerboard pattern; the values close to zero represent random local pattern. The grid was created from the bathymetry grid of Darwin Harbour. Please see the metadata of the bathymetry grid for details (GeoCat no: 74915).

  • This is a compilation of all the processed multibeam bathymetry data that Geoscience Australia holds in its database for the Cato, West and Birds Island (Coral Sea) in the northeastern coast of Queensland. The compilation and the processing of GA's bathymetric data in the Coral Sea was produced following a request by an external client in July 2013.

  • These data were derived from the Australian Bathymetry database held at Geoscience Australia. The dataset comprises depth, seabed morphometric parameters: slope, aspect, topographic relief and rocky layer, and geomorphic features.

  • This is a compilation of all the processed multibeam bathymetric data that Geoscience Australia holds in its database for the Bremer Sub-Basin. The location of the sub-basin lies in deep water off the southwest margin of WA between Albany and Esperance at the western end of the Great Australian Bight.

  • This tile contains all multibeam data held by Geoscience Australia on August 2012 within the specified area. The data has been gridded to 50m resolution. Some deeper data has also been interpolated within the mapped area.

  • Geoscience Australia carried out marine surveys in Jervis Bay (NSW) in 2007, 2008 and 2009 (GA303, GA305, GA309, GA312) to map seabed bathymetry and characterise benthic environments through colocated sampling of surface sediments (for textural and biogeochemical analysis) and infauna, observation of benthic habitats using underwater towed video and stills photography, and measurement of ocean tides and wavegenerated currents. Data and samples were acquired using the Defence Science and Technology Organisation (DSTO) Research Vessel Kimbla. Bathymetric mapping, sampling and tide/wave measurement were concentrated in a 3x5 km survey grid (named Darling Road Grid, DRG) within the southern part of the Jervis Bay, incorporating the bay entrance. Additional sampling and stills photography plus bathymetric mapping along transits was undertaken at representative habitat types outside the DRG. This 18 sample data set comprises %TOC, %TN, TOC/TN ratios, carbon and nitrogen isotopic ratios and major and trace element concnetrations of plant and algae tissues from Jervis Bay. The red algae likely belong to the genera Gracilaria edulis and Acrosorium venulosum which are abundant in the Bay, and are often observed to washup on the beaches.
