    This record contains data collected on the charter vessel Foundation One between 31 March and 03 April 2004. The data can be used for Ocean Colour sensor validation. Parameters measured are the concentration of chlorophyll and carotenoid pigments and retrieved chlorophyll a estimate, the absorption coefficient for dissolved (CDOM) particulate (a/p) and detrital or non-algal (a/d) components of the water column. 8 stations were sampled. The data was used primarily to validate ocean colour sensors MERIS, MODIS and SeaWIFs and the SST sensor AATSR. Samples were collected and analysed for pigments, total suspended solids (TSS) and absorption coefficient, dissolved and particulate. CLW deployed instruments RAMSES, AC-9, Hydroscat and Hydrorad.

    Sensor network infrastructure was installed at Myrmidon Reef in the central Great Barrier Reef off Townsville, Australia. The infrastructure consists of a base station mounted on the existing reef communications tower and a single buoy which carries the actual sensors. Myrmidon Reef is on the edge of the continetial shelf and so the station is designed to measure upwelling of water from the slope coming up and onto the continential shelf. The station is linked to stations at Rib Reef (mid-shelf) and Orpheus Island (inshore) to track upwelling water across the shelf. The project looks to deploy sensor networks at seven sites along the Great Barrier Reef to measure a range of physical parameters at a range of scales. The project will install communications, data and platform infrastructure that will support future sensor work looking at biological and chemical parameters. The FAIMMS Project is part of the GBROOS or Great Barrier Reef Ocean Observing System project which in turn is part of the Australian Integrated Marine Observing System or IMOS. In February 2011 Cyclone 'Yasi' damaged the existing AIMS weather station and so this buoy was deployed with both AIMS weather station sensors and sensors for the IMOS funded GBROOS project. In December 2011, a replacement buoy was deployed with the above water sensors being the existing AIMS weather station units and the in-water sensors being provided under the IMOS funded GBROOS project. This resulted in a data gap between the cyclone in February 2011 and the buoy being deployed in December 2011. It is antcipated that the AIMS weather station will be restored in late 2012 in which case the above water sensors will transition back to the AIMS tower with the in-water sensors remaining as part of the IMOS funded work.
