This data set includes vertical ocean profiles of temperature, salinity and backscatter beneath ice cover in Svalbard Fjord, Norway. The data were collected by a Seabird Conductivity-Temperature-Depth (CTD) system mounted on a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) on three trips: the north side of Van Mijenfjorden in March 2001; the south of Van Mijenfjorden in March 2004; the south of Van Mijenfjorden in June 2004. To address the differences between theory and observation regarding the rate of ice formation, supercooling in the ocean boundary layer, and the effective diffusivities of heat and salt, the small-scale physics of sea ice formation were studied. This data set is available as tab-delimited ASCII text files, sizes 32 KB to 2,033 KB.

Data from the South Australian Museum has not been verified or checked in a systematic way. Data is often sourced from specimen labels, particularly for old museum specimens and inaccuracy is often due to this fact.
Data supplied to OBIS by the South Australian Museum is freely accessible by the public. The data supplied may not represent the total holdings of the Museum as data about incompletely identified specimens, manuscript names and specimens where a georeference cannot be calculated have normally been withheld from publication.
Data users should acknowledge the South Australian Museum and also OZCAM, Australia's Fauna.
