Dataset: Wollongong Coastal Station Data 1966


This dataset contains oceanographic data collected at a series of 25m to 300 m coastal stations off Wollongong, New South Wales (lat. 34 deg. 26 min. S, long. 150 deg. 58 min. E to 151 deg 19 min E) in January-February 1966, utilising the research vessel M.V. Saga. The stations were set up under the CSIRO coastal monitoring programme in the 1960s and were sampled for temperature, salinity, dissolved oxygen, phosphate and nitrate at depth intervals of 10m or greater, below the surface. Sampling was undertaken on two dates in January 1966, and on five dates in February 1966. The data are stored on-line as part of the CMR hydrology archive in Hobart. Additional copies of the data are deposited with the NODC data archive (World Data Centre-A) in the U.S.A., and details of relevant data files can be viewed via their website by requesting the file inventory for this coastal station which is NODC platform code "09F2". Station details, plus printed versions of the data, have been published in CSIRO's "Oceanographical Station List" series.
