BoM GASP Back Trajectories (R/V Discoverer Transitions)



This dataset contains back trajectories designed to aid in the analysis of the R/V Discoverer "transition periods" as defined by Tim Bates. Five periods have been identified by Tim Bates leading to four transitions (as well as beginning andend locations as the Discoverer entered and left Hobart). For each transition, there are 5 series of trajectories at -12, -06, +00, +06, and +12 hours.
