Lord Howe Island Infaunal data, Australia (2008)

Latest version published by CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere on Sep 4, 2019 CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere

Lord Howe Island (31° 33’S, 159° 04’E) sits approximately 580 km east of the eastern coast of Australia. The main focus of the survey was the shallow shelf surrounding Lord Howe Island, which ranges in depth from 25 to 150 m. For each sample station, a Smith-McIntyre bottom sediment sampler (10 litre, 0.1 m2 gape) was operated from the starboard deck of Southern Surveyor. The grab was used to collect sediment and infauna samples. It uses a spring-loaded scoop triggered by contact with the seabed and can collect an intact sample of sediment. Upon triggering, the grab immediately covers the sample, which prevents disturbance during retrieval to the surface. In some locations, three replicate samples were taken.
