|Title:||Flow cytometric classification of the phytoplankton community across Australia’s top end|
|Investigator(s):|| Allison McInnes
Queensland University of Technology [details]
|Description:|| Phytoplankton are a diverse group of autotrophic organisms that range in size, shape, activity, and role in marine ecosystems. Understanding the composition of the phytoplankton community offers insight into the functioning of these systems. Phytoplankton Class can be determined by pigment composition, analysis of which offers compositional understanding of these important ecosystem engineers; hence much development has been done in analysis of pigments. Current methods require large volumes of water and are amalgamations of the total community pigments. The proposed research will utilise the spectral signature capability of the Cytek Aurora to classify phytoplankton using their pigment composition at the single cell level using small volumes.|

|V. Puigcorbe (Edith Cowan University)|| RV Investigator transit voyage between Brisbane and Darwin: in2021_T01, with the following supplementary and piggyback projects:
The primary objective of voyage IN2021_T01 is movement of RV Investigator from Brisbane to Darwin in preparation for IN2021_V04. Up to 72 hours of the transit voyage have been allocated to conduct scientific operations which will consist of a minimum of 12hrs devoted to the Supplementary Project: Microplastics in the food chain: impact on the microbial and planktonic organisms. The remaining time can be available for multiple Piggyback Projects. Some opportunistic mapping has been prepared should we be ahead of schedule.
