    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.

    This record contains data generated from samples collected in Moreton Bay between 28 and 31 Jan 2003. The data can be used for Ocean Colour sensor validation.

    SeaDataNet is the Pan-European infrastructure for marine and ocean data management and delivery services. It is supported by the EU under its Research Infrastructures programme. It connects 40 National Oceanographic Data Centres (NODC's) and 50 other data centres from 35 countries, bordering the European seas and Atlantic Ocean. The centres are mostly part of major marine management and research organisations that are acquiring and managing a large collection of marine and ocean data from various disciplines. This includes major international organisations, ICES and IOC-IODE. The overall objective is provide overview and access to marine and oceanographic data and data-products from government and research institutes in Europe. SeaDataNet contributes to the implementation of the EU INSPIRE and Marine Strategy Framework Directives. It also plays a key role in the development and operation of the EU EMODNet initiative. The SeaDataNet infrastructure is fully operational and INSPIRE compliant. It includes a versatile SeaDataNet portal (http://www.seadatanet.org) that provides users with a range of metadata, data and data product access services as well as standards, tools and guides for good marine data management. The Common Data Index (CDI) data discovery & access service provides harmonised access to the large volumes of datasets that are managed by the connected data centres. The CDI service contains already references and gives access to more than 1,5 milllion marine and oceanographic datasets as managed by 90 data centres. These numbers are increasing regularly because of further data population and more connected data centres as part of SeaDataNet II, EMODnet and other EU projects. For inclusion in the SeaDataNet INSPIRE compliant CSW service, the CDI records (at granule level) have been aggregated into CDI collections by a combination of Discipline, Data Centre, and geometric type. Each CSW XML record therefore represents a large collection of individual metadata records and associated datasets. By following the specified URL to the SeaDataNet portal users can evaluate these metadata in detail and request access by downloading of interesting datasets via the shopping cart transaction system that is integrated in the SeaDataNet portal.
