Julia Reisser (CMAR & UWA) MNF Southern Surveyor RV ss2012_t03. Predicting the sources, distribution and fate of floating marine debris. Scientific Objectives: Marine debris has become a major hazard to marine life through ingestion and entanglement and is also leading to aesthetic degradation, economic losses and human health hazards. The increase in amounts of marine debris can be attributed to at least three factors: (1) plastics replaced natural fibers in the manufacture of many everyday items; (2) plastics are often less expensive than the materials they replace,thereby decreasing incentives to reuse or recycle items; (3) there are simply more ships and coastal residents that can lose or discard materials. Monitoring studies are needed to assess the effectiveness of governments' actions in reducing the overall amount of marine debris as well as certain types of debris of particular concern, such as fishing gear and microplastics. For the first time, floating marine debris (FMD) will be systematically sampled in oceanic waters close to east coast of Australia. This voyage will provide us the opportunity to collect samples over a broad range of latitudes. These data will be useful to test a hypothesis recently proposed by marine researchers: FMD concentrations tend to be higher at subtropical latitudes. The general aim of this project is to estimate FMD composition and concentration (pieces/km2) at different locations around Australia.

R. Kloser Towards an understanding of mid-trophic biomass, distribution, variability and energetics in ocean ecosystems. Scientific Objectives: The water column comprises more than 90% of the earths living space and its deep water component is probably the largest and least-known major faunal group on Earth despite its obvious importance at the global scale (Robison, 2009). Biological communities in these habitats are dominated by meso-zooplankton and micronekton (fishes, crustaceans, squids and gelatinous zooplankton, 2-20 cm length) that are crucial to the foodwebs of pelagic and demersal predators (e.g. Bulman et al. 2001. The micronekton of the ocean is involved in a vertical migration from deep to shallow depths and, again, while little understood, probably accounts for the bulk of global ocean biomass. This ecological system is under threat from a broad range of influences including climate change and carbon dioxide (ocean acidification) (Robison, 2009). The Tasman Sea is a high priority region as it is predicted to be a global temperature change hot spot (Cai et al., 2005). This large predicted temperature shift in the Tasman Sea will have major impacts on the structure and function of the ecosystem from biogeochemistry, plankton, micronecton and nekton to depths in excess of 400 m. During this voyage we will be refining methods to interpret basin scale acoustic sampling with targeted mid-water net sampling and multi-frequency acoustic and optical sensing. This refinement will contribute to the IMOS bio-acoustic sampling program.

A. Forbes (CSIRO) This cruise was designed to monitor the passage of cold fronts from a position W of King Island, Bass Strait. Two cold fronts were monitored for the cold fronts program of CSIRO Atmospheric Research and the Bureau of Meteorology, and a toroid buoy with meteorological sensors deployed and compared with shipboard meteorological data. 6 deep Niskin/CTD casts were made to approx. 5000 m, and water samples were taken from Bass Strait for primary production incubation experiments.

DH 7/57

[details]
J. Staniforth (CSIRO) Voyage DH 7/57 was designed to investigate short-term (daily) changes in hydrological conditions off Port Hacking (New South Wales coast). 4 stations were studied daily for a 5-day period in water depths to 750m, in tandem with measurements from two further stations from the vessel "Jay Bee" to depths of 100m. Drift cards were also released to study water movements over this period.
