The Australian Animal Tracking And Monitoring System (AATAMS) is a coordinated marine animal tagging project. Satellite Relay
Data Loggers (SRDL) (most with CTDs, and some also with fluorometers) are used to explore how marine mammal behaviour relates
to their oceanic environment. Loggers developed at the University of St Andrews Sea Mammal Research Unit transmit data in
near real-time via the Argo satellite system. The Satellite Relay Data Loggers are deployed on marine mammals, including
Elephant Seals, Weddell Seals, Australian Fur Seals, Australian Sea Lions, New Zealand Fur Seals. Data is being collected
in the Southern Ocean, the Great Australian Bight, and off the South-East Coast of Australia. Data parameters measured by
the instruments include time, conductivity (salinity), temperature, and depth. The data represented by this record are presented
in near real-time.
As of the 19/11/2019, this data collection has been decommissioned. Historical files are still available on the IMOS THREDDS
All subsequent CTD data is available via the current “IMOS - AATAMS Facility - Satellite Relay Tagging Program - Delayed
mode data” collection (https://catalogue-imos.aodn.org.au/geonetwork/srv/en/metadata.show?uuid=06b09398-d3d0-47dc-a54a-a745319fbece) in csv format, as opposed to NetCDF as was previously delivered via
this “Near real-time” collection.
