Dataset: Aurora Australis Voyage 1 (FIRE) 1998-99 Underway Data


This dataset contains the underway data collected during the Aurora Australis Voyage 1 1998-99. This was a dedicated marine science cruise aimed at researching winter-time oceanographic, glaciological, meteorological and biological processes within a polynya near the Mertz Glacier. However, the mission was aborted after a serious engine room fire occurred one week into the voyage. Underway data are available online via the Australian Antarctic Division Data Centre.
