Type: Feature Layer

Geometry Type: esriGeometryPoint

Description: This layer consists of a subset of data (n = 264479) extracted from the MARine Sediment (MARS) database on 26 November 2015 using the following bounding box - 9.23485 (decimal degrees (dd), north), 131.239013 (dd, east), -23.586110 (dd, south) and 110.681228 (dd, west). Data is displayed according to the sampling method. The geocat for this dataset is 69869. The MARS database contains detailed information on seabed sediment characteristics for samples collected from Australia's marine jurisdiction, including the Australian Antarctic Territory. It is an important scientific resource that includes survey and sample information such as locations, water depths and sample descriptions. Data are also provided from quantitative analyses of the sediments, such as grain size, mud, sand, gravel and carbonate concentrations, mineralogy, age determinations, geochemical properties, and physical attributes for down-core samples including bulk density, p-wave velocity, porosity and magnetic susceptibility. New data are being added as they become available. Please contact us at if you wish to contribute marine sediment data to the MARS database or access the database at
