RV Investigator's cold water trial voyage

The Marine National Facility Steering Committee met in Hobart on 20 February this year, just days after Investigator returned from a very successful cold water sea trial in the Southern Ocean to 65 degrees south.

The Steering Committee discussed a range of strategic issues such as the development of a new business model to maximise use of Investigator, options for increasing student training on MNF voyages and changes to the applications process to ensure that all science undertaken through the MNF has more clearly defined national benefit.
