Abstract

This dataset was created in ArcGIS and provides the direct distance from all grid cell points of the Australian Exclusive Economic Zone (adjacent to the mainland) to the Australian coastline. The distance measured is in decimal degrees and meters. The distance to the coastline is likely to reflect some degree of exposure to a wave/current regime. The proximity to land is also likely to reflect the potential influence of river discharge (sediment and fresh water), wind blown dust, and anthropogenic pollutants.
