Transport and dispersal of selected pollutants in the terrestrial and nearshore marine environments, Casey StationEntry ID: ASAC_2179
Abstract: Metadata record for data from ASAC Project 2179
See the link below for public details on this project.
Taken from a progress report of the project written in 1998:
60 terrestrial sediments have been taken from Wilkes and Thala Valley tip, with control sites at Robinsons Ridge and Jacks Donga. 50 marine sediments have been taken from the bay offshore from Thala Valley tip. 116 fresh and marine waters have been taken from the fresh water stream flowing through the Thala Valley tip, the tip/sea interface, and the nearshore marine offshore from Thala Valley tip and control sites. Formal integration of these data into a GIS is underway.
These data have not been archived until 2012, hence the only data available were sourced from publications arising from the project.
