In 2010 we undertook sampling of soil and waters around Wilkes station and the main tip site. We repeated the work of Snape et al. 1999 and took a more dense set of samples across the area to determine the extent and types of contamination. These data are complementary to the 1999 GIS dataset (see the metadata record with ID - ASAC_1163_WilkesGis_1999).
Description: Additional spatial data were ... collected and added to the existing AAD Wilkes GIS database (Nadia Babicka map). Locations of sediment, water, potentially hydrocarbon contaminated sediment, potentially hydrocarbon contaminated water and background samples were collected by Macquarie University and AAD staff, in January 2010, including hyperlinked sample photos; locations of Wilkes station buildings with numbers from Snape et al (1998)
