This dataset contains oceanographic data collected at a coastal transect off Broulee Island, near batemans bay in New South Wales (lat. 35 deg. 52 min. S, long. 150 deg. 15 min. E) in August 1958. The transect was set up under the CSIRO coastal monitoring programme in the 1950s and was sampled once only for temperature and salinity, at depths ranging from 50 to 500m. 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 "09AC". Station details, plus printed versions of the data, have been published in CSIRO's "Oceanographical Station List" series.
