article description
A 27-month study of the water properties across the continental shelf off Perth, Western Australia (the “Hillarys Transect”), has provided the first systematic interdisciplinary climatology of the physical, chemical, optical and biological cycles across the shelf. This paper describes the main features of the seasonal and cross-shelf variability of the physical oceanography and chemistry, while companion papers discuss some of the links between the biology and physics of the region.
