Background

The Joseph Bonaparte Gulf survey (SOL4934, GA survey #0322) was conducted on the R.V. Solander between 27 August and 24 September 2009 in collaboration with staff from the Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS) and the Northern Territory Government. The survey was completed under a Memorandum of Understanding between GA and the AIMS and represents the second of three surveys planned under this agreement. The survey obtained detailed geological (sedimentological, geochemical, geophysical) and biological data for the banks, channels and plains to establish the late-Quaternary evolution of the region and investigate relationships between the physical environment and associated biota for biodiversity prediction. Underwater video footage and still images were collected from 46 stations, although quality varies among transects and some still images were not of suitable quality for analysis. In addition, shipboard photographs were taken of barcoded biological specimens. Video and image files or associated parent folders are named according to station number, followed by gear code (TV or CAM = same underwater camera system) and then the deployment number. For example 48CAM35 represents a video transect from Station 48 that was the 35th video transect on the survey.
