Marine Microbes from the Yongala National Reference Station (NRS), Queensland, Australia (2015-2017)

Latest version published by CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere on Jun 21, 2020 CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere

The Australian Marine Microbial Biodiversity Initiative (AMMBI) provides methodologically standardized, continental scale, temporal phylogenetic amplicon sequencing data describing Bacteria, Archaea and microbial Eukarya assemblages. Sequence data is linked to extensive physical, biological and chemical oceanographic contextual information. Samples are collected monthly to seasonally from multiple depths at seven National Reference Stations (NRS) sites: Darwin Harbour (Northern Territory), Yongala (Queensland), North Stradbroke Island (Queensland), Port Hacking (New South Wales), Maria Island (Tasmania), Kangaroo Island (South Australia), Rottnest Island (Western Australia). The Integrated Marine Observing System (IMOS) NRS network is described at http://imos.org.au/facilities/nationalmooringnetwork/nrs/

Yongala NRS is located 11 nm offshore at a depth of 28 m over sandy substrate, mid-shelf between the mainland and the coral reef in the tropical Great Barrier Reef (GBR) Lagoon. The mooring is located near the Yongala Wreck, out from Cape Bowling Green, in the central GBR. The closest major city is Townsville (population 171,824), approximately 100 km to the north. The site is generally well mixed with competing influences of the south-eastward lagoonal branch of the EAC and the opposing south-easterly trade wind forced coastal current. However, the monsoonal climate brings rain during December to April, and may result in river plume impingement and stratification. This is a site where significant ocean acidification projects are being carried out. Site details from Brown, M. V. et al.

Data Records

The data in this sampling event resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 97 records. 2 extension data tables also exist. An extension record supplies extra information about a core record. The number of records in each extension data table is illustrated below.

This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.

Project Data

The Australian Microbiome Initiative (https://www.australianmicrobiome.com) is an Australian wide collaboration founded on two established Bioplatforms Australia framework data initiatives: Marine Microbes and Biomes of Australian Soil Environments (BASE).

Title Australian Microbiome
Funding This nationally-inclusive and collaborative initiative supported by core partners Bioplatforms Australia and the Integrated Marine Observing System (IMOS) through the Australian Government’s National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS), Parks Australia through the Bush Blitz program funded by the Australian Government and BHP, and the CSIRO, and led by researchers from various organisations across Australia.
