Abstract

This flythrough presents seabed bathymetry compilations for the Australian Antarctic margin. The bathymetry data presented is derived from a combination multibeam, singlebeam and satellite data (namely ETOPO2). There are few areas of the Antarctic margin with high quality multibeam data, but where present, such as off the Davis coastline, these data reveal a complex seabed environment. Bathymetry data is a powerful tool for mapping seabed environments and predicting the potential distributions of biological communities. Images showing different types of seabed communities are included for the George V margin and the Davis coastline.
