AIMS Research Data Tools
The data AIMS collects are described in detail in the AIMS Data Catalogue. The catalogue contains descriptions of data (often called metadata) which allows others, including researchers, to identify potential data of use to them. Data can then be downloaded (if available) or requested. Access to some data will be via legal data agreement.
AIMS network of 18 weather stations provide essential, real-time data every 10 minutes on above-water meteorological conditions and in-water temperatures across Australia’s tropical marine environment. The data represents the best long-term, on-reef record of climate and climate events in the region.
In a world of change, this provides an essential baseline against which we can measure and understand current marine conditions around Australia.
This tool shows information for current and previous voyages of our two research vessels. Oceanographic conditions from our real time marine weather stations are also available as well as cyclone forecast tracks for any current cyclones issued by the Bureau of Meteorology.
