This dataset contains the underway data from Voyage 1 1994-95 of the Aurora Australis. This was a resupply cruise, with limited marine science being carried out. NoQalms data types were logged at 20-second intervals. The observations were taken between August and October 1995 en route from Hobart to Macquarie Island to Davis and back to Hobart.

Where data for a particular sensor do not exist for a particular time, the last known value is used unless the sensor has been disabled or has encountered an error. For example, some sensors only record data every minute, but the resolution for the underway dataset is 10 seconds, so the same value will be used 6 times a minute. No averages are taken for sensors that capture data at a rate other than every 10 seconds. Instead, each record will be a snapshot of each sensor at that time.
The data are available on-line via the Australian Antarctic Division Data Centre web page.
