CSIRO Marine and Atmospheric Research Division held a symposium in Hobart to encourage collaboration and networking within the division.
The Marine National Facility and the Future Research Vessel Project thought it a perfect opportunity to start discussions among scientists about what will be possible on board RV Investigator.
While collaborations have been possible onboard Southern Surveyor, it’s always been fairly limited as there are only 14 scientific berths. This will change with Investigator, which will have up to 40 scientific berths. This new era in marine and atmospheric scientific research will open up new opportunities for scientists across different disciplines to work together on the same voyage.
