Full descriptionMarine debris records from beaches on Heard and Macquarie Islands and floating debris spotted on voyages.
Data were collected by observers surveying beaches either methodically or opportunistically, and by observers spotting debris as it floated past ships.
The data were originally collated into a searchable database, but the application is no longer supported by the Australian Antarctic Data Centre. An extract of the data is attached to this metadata record. The extract is in Excel format, and each worksheet is a copy of a database table.
