Survey InvestigatorDescription
FR 07/91

D. Burrage & D. Williams (AIMS), including other PIs Cruise FR 07/91 was undertaken for Coral Sea studies which included circulation and hydrography of the southern GBR, EAC and frontal convergence zones; fisheries and relationships with topography and fronts; numerical circulation models; primary productivity of the surface layer; collection of ground-truth data to validate the recently launched ERS-1 satellite remote sensing systems using ship-board data acquisition systems; SSTs measurements along-track using ship-mounted infra-red radiometers and to collect living benthic ostracods (continuation of work from FR 06/90) from different water depths, with different bottom temperatures. Also conducted was smaller scale studies around Percy Isles and two seamounts. Survey methods included ADCP, CTDs, XBTs, grabs, underway instrumentation, satellite remote sensing systems (NOAA, MOS-1 & ERS-1), radiometer measurements, radionsonde launches and ARGOS satellite drifter deployments. Water sampling for nutrients, temperature and salinity were carried out at all stations and analysed on board. Sediment and ostracod samples were collected for on board and laboratory analyses.
FR 06/90

D. Burrage (AIMS), including other PI's Cruise FR 06/90 was undertaken to study the Coral Sea circulation, comprising the SEC, the Great Barrier Reef Undercurrent, the clockwise circulation around the Gulf of Papua and the outflows to the Tasman and Solomon Seas. Ostracod sampling, NOAA satellite ground truthing and infra-red radiometer inter-comparisons were also conducted. Survey methods included ADCP, CTDs, XBTs, radiometers, grabs, underway instrumentation and deployment of 3 ARGOS satellite tracked drifters. Water, salinity, temperature, nutrient, sediment and biological samples were obtained for on board and laboratory analysis. SST and sky temperature data acquired, concurrent cloud and relevant weather observations were also made.
