|Title:||Remote-ROAM: mobile modelling sea trials|
|Investigator(s):|| Farhan Rizwi
CSIRO Oceans & Atmosphere - Hobart [details]
|Description:||The aim of this work was to operationally test the Bluelink mobile oceanographic modelling system (referred to as Remote-ROAM) that has been developed by CSIRO and BoM for use by the Royal Australian Navy (RAN). The goal of this system is to provide enhanced situational awareness for surface (ships) and subsurface (submarines) platforms. This was the first time this system has been deployed at sea and the project will focus on testing the modelling system and associated data feeds, along with an assessment of the forecast skill against deployed XBT’s and the ships flow-through system.|

|Gustaaf Hallegraeff (UTAS/IMAS)||Harmful Algal Blooms And Their Long-Term Sediment Record In East Coast Tasmanian Waters (Chief Scientist: Gustaaf Hallegraeff, IMAS/UTAS) Unprecedented toxic dinoflagellate blooms occurred off east coast Tasmania in 2012 and 2015/2016. These events led to a global shellfish product recall (AUD23M loss), lengthy (4 months) closures of mussel, oyster, scallop, and rock lobster fisheries, and 4 human hospitalisations (Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning). While the causative Alexandrium dinoflagellate had been previously detected, genetic evidence suggests that blooms represent a cryptic genotype newly stimulated by climate-driven increased water column stratification. We seek to characterize blooms from with the long time (1000+ yr) ancient DNA sediment record using novel genetic methods.|
