Survey InvestigatorDescription
SS 03/91

D. McKenzie & B. Phillips (CSIRO) Southern Surveyor cruise SS 03/91. Leg 1 of the cruise was undertaken to get the underway salinity, temperature and fluorescence system going and to establish operating, calibration and maintenance procedures for these instruments; to measure surface salinity, temperature and fluorescence, and to collect surface nutrients across the sub-tropical convergence and to drop XBT's along a transect south of Tasmania to Cape Leeuwin. Leg 2 of the cruise, rock lobster larval sampling was conducted in the vicinity of the Abrolhos Islands and hydrographic sections across the Leeuwin Current.
FR 12/89

B. Phillips (CSIRO) Cruise FR 12/89 was undertaken to study the ecology of the late stage phyllosoma larvae and puerulus stage of the Southern Rock lobster, Jasus novaehollandiae (now known as Jasus edwardsii). To investigate the nature of the infrared radiation upwelling from the ocean surface and the ships heading derived from GPS navigation data in waters off eastern Tasmania. Survey methods included EZ net system, infrared radiometers, CTDs, and underway instrumentation. Numerous biological, water samples and data from the two radiometers were collected for on board and laboratory analysis. Good data was also collected on all possible GPS times.
FR 08/87

B. Phillips (CSIRO) including other Pis Cruise FR 08/87 was undertaken for a rock lobster larval and tuna larval survey; satellite sea surface temperature validation study and to examine the vertical distribution of organic particulates (<1mm) in the water column. Work completed and data acquired included sea surface temperature measurements, measured by seven different instruments or techniques (3 infra-red radiometers, thermistor, thermosalinograph, bucket and NOAA satellites); collection of plankton and organic particulates samples; ADCP, CTD and underway data. The EZ net failed to operate during the cruise. However, samples were collected on three occasions by using a surface net operated on a boom from the side of the ship. Data and samples were collected for on board and laboratory analysis.
