Geophysical Survey and Mapping
The Geophysical Survey and Mapping (GSM) group undertakes hydrographic survey, geophysics, bathymetric mapping and visualisation. It provides geophysical and acoustic specialists who participate in voyages on the Marine National Facility's RV Investigator, and provides advice and assistance to the scientific community on bathymetric mapping. It manages the multibeam data collected on historic RV Franklin and RV Southern Surveyor voyages. The team also manages the Shallow Swath Facility, which contributes to coastal mapping initiatives.
