2501 [view] Robyn Schofield AIR-BOX integration and calibration 2019 The integration and calibration of the AIR-BOX (a containerised laboratory which houses aerosol atmospheric monitoring instruments), guest instruments in the aerosol laboratory and air chemistry laboratories, as well as optical instruments located on deck 5, will occur during this voyage. This is in preparation for the upcoming voyage IN2019_V06, during which the AIR-BOX will be utilised in conjunction with RV Investigator’s aerosol laboratory and air chemistry laboratory to continuously collect comprehensive atmospheric chemistry and aerosol measurements. PI Schofield will coordinate with the AIR-BOX consortium to conduct atmospheric biogenic air measurements, aerosol composition, aerosol profile and oxidative capacity measurements to understand the emissions and processing of sulphur and halocarbons from the ocean in this region. Trace-gas and aerosol observations near the Great Barrier Reef will be made continuously throughout this transit voyage. Continuous Plankton Recorder (CPR) sampling will also occur in conjunction with the AIR-BOX measurements. The CPR will be deployed during the longer legs of the transit (i.e. between CPR deployments and mapping surveys). CPR deployments will also be scheduled around the deployments of other towed equipment (e.g. SVPs). One cassette can be used to sample plankton on tows of up to 450 nm. Where the cassette is towed for <450 nm (i.e. the vessel is required to stop for a CTD deployment or to conduct survey mapping work), the CPR will be retrieved and potentially redeployed, following suitable protocols to indicate the start and end of each deployment. The CPR sampling will occur in conjunction with measurements of atmospheric halocarbons and DMS. Establishing the plankton community composition will be advantageous to understanding what plankton species are associated with high atmospheric concentrations.

2109 [view] Russ Babcock ARC Discovery Project 2004 to 2005 The ARC project that has funded Vanderklift's postdoctoral fellowship at Edith Cowan Uni. is a highly complimentary fit with core SRFME goals (understanding of ecological interactions and trophic linkages) and is already underway in two areas that have also been chosen as key SRFME field sites (Jurien Bay and Marmion Lagoon). The project will provide inputs to overall understanding of ecosystem function, including quantitative estimates of key parameters for input to models. This relatively seamless fit of the project into SRFME has the net result of broadening the scope of SRFME as well as adding depth to the existing trophic studies component. This benefit has been subsidised to the tune of around 1 yrs salary by the ARC postdoc that Vanderklift brings with him.

2394 [view] Susan Wijffels ARGO Australia 1999 CSIRO Marine & Atmospheric Research is the operator for Argo Australia. This firstly involves purchase, pre-deployment preparation and deployment of the floats, by engineers and technicians. Once floats have been deployed, the data transmissions are decoded and quality controlled in near real-time and the data sent to Global Data Centres (GDACs) within 24 hours. Final "delayed mode" quality control is carried out some months later, under the direction of the lead scientist, to provide the highest possible quality data to the community.
2623 [view] Gabriela Semolini Pilo ARGO float deployment 2023 to 2023 The Array for Real-Time Geostrophic Oceanography (ARGO) program is a collaboration of scientific institutions around the world, and includes an Australian contribution led by the CSIRO. Given the lifespan of ~3-5 years for each deployed float, the objective on this voyage is to deploy additional floats in strategic areas of the Southern Ocean to maintain geographic coverage of the data array. ARGO floats will be deployed on an opportunistic basis, when weather and other voyage activities are not impacted. Estimated drop coordinates are:

Float #1: 43.5oS, 142.3oE

Float #2: 42.6oS, 143.5oE

Or at these longitudes, along the ship’s track. The MNF has agreed to deploy 2 standard ARGO float(s) at predetermined waypoints.

2361 [view] Tim Ryan Acoustic Survey Blue Grenadier 2008 2008 to 2009 CMR is developing strategies and methods towards ecosystem based methods of fisheries management. This involves development of both modelling and observation tools including development of scientific acoustic observation methods for fisheries that are being transfered to fishing vessels. In 2002 industry funded a pilot study to assess the potential for applying acoustic methods to the blue grenadier fishery. This was followed by a three year FRDC funded project "Blue grenadier acoustic observation system based on industry vessels". This project proposes to apply the methods developed during the FRDC project to collect and analyse the industry based survey data. Our involvement is part of a transition process where the uptake of our methods will enable the blue grenadier industry to take responsibility for the organisation and execution of regular low-cost monitoring of their stocks as part of the ongoing sustainable management of the fishery.

2512 [view] Rudy Kloser Acoustic estimates of zooplankton and fish distribution 2017 The voyage objective is to map the top 1000m of the water column for micronekton organisms (small fish, crustaceans, gelatinous and squids of ~2-20 cm in length) at the SOTS site using the PLAOS acoustic optical system. Commonly nets, optic and acoustic samplers are used to determine the taxonomy, size, biomass, trophic linkage and energetics of zooplankton and micronekton. Each of these sampling methods have bias and uncertainty that need to be quantified prior to attributing changes within and between regions. In particular for the gelatinous community that covers a wide range of taxonomic and energetic groups that are difficult to sample with nets. To improve vessel mounted acoustic and net sampling methods of macro-zooplankton and micronekton a new profiling multi-frequency acoustic optical system has been developed with the ultimate aim of it being used as a remote sampling tool. On this voyage we will be testing the next phase of a profiling lagrangian acoustic and optical probe (PLAOS) to sample these organisms to depths of 1000 m. These tests will involve detailed sampling of the repeatability of the measurements when varying lighting, using new broadband acoustic sensors and a new buoyancy engine to enable the system to do repeat profiles. Development of this methodology and technology will significantly advance our knowledge of micronekton biomass and distribution and provide the necessary structure and function understanding for the development of carbon and ecosystem models of the open ocean linking to the ACE CRC carbon program as well as the MESOPP ecosystem program.
2638 [view] Ben Scoulding Acoustic survey of basket eel on Patience seamount in Huon AMP and ecological and carbon sequestration role of zooplankton in the Southern Ocean 2024 We seek to carry a planned camera and acoustic survey of Patience Seamount within the ‘Huon’ Marine Park (Huon MP) south of Tasmania, lead remotely by scientists not onboard. The Huon MP has been identified as the only known location of a spawning aggregation of the basketwork eel, Diastobranchus capensis – a globally distributed and ecologically important deep-sea species. In the austral autumn, the spawning aggregation is large and likely the regional-scale spatial anchor for the species. As such it represents a key natural value in Australia – one with a hypothesised trajectory of ‘improving status’ following decades long impact from bottom trawling before the Huon MP was established. The spatial concentration of eels in the aggregation (~2-3 km2) and their high acoustic reflectivity are highly attractive characteristics that will enable the aggregation to be measured quantitatively with a hydroacoustic sensor (echosounder) and with very little further extractive sampling. As stated by Williams et al., (2021) “Monitoring the aggregation’s status, and validating seasonal spawning, provide important opportunities to examine conservation-led recovery in the deep sea as part of Australia’s new national strategy of Monitoring, Evaluation, Reporting, and Improvement (MERI) for conservation values within marine parks.”.
2506 [view] Rudy Kloser Acoustic zooplankton and fish 2018 1. With vessel stationary, deploy PLAOS acoustic-optical profiling device to 1000m depth, 2 times per night for up to 5 nights. Each cast takes ~1.5 hours. Protocols have been developed for the PLAOS operations on previous trials and operational voyages. The deployments need to commence at night at least 1 hour after sunset and finish at least 1 hours before sunrise. Deploy the PLAOS during the day for 1 -2 casts to characterise the vertical flux of organisms to assist with zooplankton grazing experiments. 2.Operate the ships underway bio-acoustic sensors during the voyage to characterise the epipelagic and mesopelagic scattering (IMOS bioacoustics). Trials of broadband acoustics from the vessels transducers and CTD casts to 1000 m will also be done on an opportunistic basis. Test the reduction in noise on the acoustic systems from previous voyage recommendations. 3.Capture key zooplankton/micronekton organisms using a single wire ISAAC Kid (or RMT25) trawl towed obliquely to 600 m depth and a 1 m surface net for species identification, isotope and acoustic reflectance studies. Three to five night time tows and two day time tows are envisaged (~3 hrs per operation).

2625 [view] Katherina Petrou Adding the Sub-Antarctic to an oceanic latitudinal study of diatom silica production rates 2023 The primary goal of this project is to obtain species-specific estimates of silica production within mixed natural phytoplankton communities from distinct latitudinal regions of the ocean to better understand rates of silica production as a function of community composition and temperature. By obtaining upper and lower rates for communities and individual species within the community, we can start to gain a clearer and more precise picture of the ecological and biogeochemical role of diatoms in Australian waters. Therefore, there are two specific aims of this project: 1) To determine bulk rates of silicification in phytoplankton communities from latitudinally distinct bioregions (from tropics to sub-polar). 2) To evaluate species-specific silicification to identify the heavy weights in the community. To date, data has been collected from the all four east coast NRS sites (Yongala, North Stradbroke Island, Port Hacking, and Maria Island. By including the SOTS site in our study, we can extend our latitudinal gradient to 47°S and thus temperature range from 6-30°C to include the Sub-Antarctic, which would provide invaluable information to the data set, as diatoms are a key component of cold-water communities and ocean warming will likely start to impact these cooler regions more rapidly. With this information, we can start to build a more complete picture of silicon cycling in regionally distinct oceanographic waters of Australia.

While in past years this cofus has been on the pollutants SO2, Nox and fine aprticles as well a the regional impact of acid deposition and ozone formation, during the past decade attention has focussed increasingly on greenhouse gas emissions..... impact: To improve and maintain local and regional air quality from the potential increase in DE, it is crucial to assess the impact of emissions for various implementation scenarios. This project will significantly remove uncertainty over the global, regional and local air quality impacts of distributed generation. ....

2129 [view] Brian Taylor Anecdotal information collection about NPF bycatch, habitat and environment, and commercial trawling 2004 to 2005 The ides for this project was originally discussed at the by-catch monitoring project forum where anecdotal information about by-catch was being collected from commercial operators. It was acknowledged that industry holds a vast knowledge base extending far beyond by-catch issues and that we should explore the possibility of diversifying the process of documenting this knowledge. Discussions with several other CSIRO project staff then took place and a decision was made to apply for funding to allow this anecdotal information to be collected and documented. The collection and documentation of historical and current anecdotal information (observation and interpretation) from commercial NPF operators will not only provide an insight into the fishery from a different perspective, but will also provide a description of some aspects of the NPF which would be expensive to collect through normal research projects. Some of the information collected will provide CSIRO with ideas and knowledge to help plan new projects and to supplement other research data collection. It will provide an indocation of whether results are universal or localised and will assist our understanding of the effect of some of the management measures implemented over the life of the fishery, including those instigated from CSIRO research.

2532 [view] Melita Keywood Atmospheric underway measurements 2016 The scientific objective of this work is to investigate the chemical composition,size distribution, optical properties and cloud nucleating properties of marine aerosol over the southern hemisphere with the aim of quantifying regional contributions of aerosols to radiative forcing. There is currently very large uncertainty associated with the direct, semi-direct and indirect effect of aerosols on radiative forcing. A key feature in this regard is the influence on cloud properties of cloud condensation nuclei (CCN), the very small atmospheric aerosol particles necessary for the nucleation of every single cloud droplet. A recent analysis of the 35-year CCN concentration record at Cape challenges the current accepted wisdom of the role of dimethyl sulfide (DMS) on CCN formation over the Southern Ocean. In particular, it appears that DMS oxidation is only significant during the summer months at Cape Grim, and in fact other sources and processes dominate throughout the rest of the year (Gras pers com). That other sources and processes may be significant in CCN production and modulation has also recently been suggested in a review of the CLAW hypothesis. The identity of these sources remains an open question.

Instrumentation will run continuously in the Aerosol and Air Chemistry Labs whilst underway with no special requirements with regards to the vessel’s course or speed. On board work will involve the daily checking of instruments within the two labs and the storing of filter samples in the walk-in freezer. In addition measurements will be taken at sea using hand held instruments outside on deck during good weather conditions.

2483 [view] Jodie Vandekamp Australian Microbiome Initiative sampling and filtration 2019 The Australian Microbiome (AM) Initiative is a continental-scale, collaborative project aspiring to characterise the diversity and ecosystem service provision of the microorganisms inhabiting natural Australian ecosystems. The mission of the AM Initiative is to develop a comprehensive, publicly-accessible database of microbial diversity across a geographically expansive and diverse range of Australian terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. In terms of pelagic ecosystems, the Project aims to make these observations at long-term temporal scales (IMOS NRS; repeated voyage transects) and large spatial scales (voyages). The data provide a crucial spatial and temporal scaffold for understanding Australian marine microbiology which in turn underpins long term observations on the status and trends of oceanic health, biogeochemistry and primary productivity. Details on the AM Initiative can be found here: https://www.australianmicrobiome.com/.The scientific objectives of the AM Initiative are to expand our existing spatial coverage of voyage samples for genomics analysis from the oceans surrounding Australia. For IN2019_V07, the primary objective was to trial/demonstrate the ability to incorporate this type of water filtering for genomics samples on a more routine basis utilising the existing capability on board the Investigator.

Newly developed sensors now allow profiling floats to also observe biogeochemical properties with sufficient accuracy for climate studies. This extension of Argo will enable an observing system that can determine the seasonal to decadal-scale variability in biological productivity, the supply of essential plant nutrients from deepwaters to the sunlit surface layer, ocean acidification, hypoxia, and ocean uptake of CO2. Biogeochemical-Argo will drive a transformative shift in our ability to observe and predict the effects of climate change on ocean metabolism, carbon uptake, and living marine resource management. The Australian contribution to global Biogeochemical-Argo is coordinated through the Australia-India Strategic Research Fund (AISRF) Indian Ocean Bio-Argo project and the IMOS Argo-Australia facility.

AusSeabed has a compilation of seabed mapping priorities by Government entities as well as an agreed set of overall government priorities. Priority is given to areas where: -more bathymetric data are required for safe navigation -there is a known pressure and baseline data are required to provide information to support an environmental assessment and monitoring -there is resource competition, and baseline environmental data are required to support better understanding of surrounding issues -data are urgently required to support policy and government decisions. Agencies ranked their priority areas 1, 2 and 3 based on urgency of the need for the data and the impact of the data. Parks Australia has ranked the shelf area of the Huon AMP as Priority 1.

The surveys mark an uptake by industry of methods developed by CSIRO over the last 14 years. The acoustic and biological data from these surveys will need to be analysed and a written report of the biomass at each ground determined. This snapshot biomass will be then used in the VPA model of both fisheries to determine the status of the stock at both grounds. While in future years this analysis could conceivably be left to industry to organise, CSIRO is currently the only entity with sufficient expertise to take on this type of analysis. WITHOUT THIS ANALYSIS NO UPDATE OF THE STATUS OF THE STOCK ON THE TWO GROUNDS WILL BE POSSIBLE. Biomass Estimation of Orange Roughy

Additionally, it’s planned that RVI will hold station and use the Drop Camera to get seafloor confirmation of the shipwreck location and condition. If confirmed, the shipwreck would later be reported via an existing MNF communication plan.

Further opportunistic mapping along our voyage track will be conducted in collaboration with the Voyage Manager, Chief Scientist and GSM teams onboard. This opportunity will only be realised if/when there is an opening in our schedule that does not impact voyage priorities.

2441 [view] Alain Protat CAPRICORN: Clouds, Aerosols, Precipitation, Radiation, and Atmospheric Composition over the Southern Ocean 2016 CAPRICORN Project. Scientific Objectives: Cloud-aerosol-precipitation processes over the Southern Ocean (SO) are one of the largest sources of uncertainties in future climate projections. The CAPRICORN proposal aims to advance our knowledge of the SO cloud systems, aerosol properties, surface energy budget, upper ocean biological aerosol production, and atmospheric composition, in order to improve the characterization of their physical properties from satellite platforms and global models. The cloud morphological, microphysical and thermodynamical properties and boundary layer structure are very poorly observed over the SO. Climate and numerical weather prediction models also poorly represent the cloud and precipitation fields over the Southern Ocean and, as a consequence, appear to poorly predict the energy balance. The objectives of this proposal are to (i) characterize the cloud, aerosol, and precipitation properties, boundary layer structure, biological production and cycling of dimethyl sulfide (DMS) in the upper ocean, atmospheric composition, and surface energy budget, as well as their latitudinal variability; (ii) evaluate and improve satellite estimations of these properties, and (iii) evaluate and improve the representation of these properties in the Australian ACCESS regional and global model.

2460 [view] April Abbott, Jochen Kaempf CAPSTAN 2017 CAPSTAN is a post-graduate training program. The Collaborative Australian Postgraduate Sea Training Alliance Network is a post-graduate at sea training initiative on the RV Investigator. Governed by a network of leading industry and university partners from within marine science and geoscience, CAPSTAN is a first of its kind programme which will transform the way marine science education is delivered. A truly national education initiative, CAPSTAN offers a national approach to teaching and learning in the marine sciences whilst providing a platform for institutional, industrial and generational knowledge transfer and collaboration. Our aims have arisen out of a national desire to: • Develop an effective, efficient form of vessel-based tertiary education by involving stakeholders and post-graduate students, and by pooling national tertiary teaching expertise and personnel resources; • Develop a national curriculum to standardise teaching protocols/methods and learning outcomes in this area in conjunction with the new data collection equipment and facilities of the Marine National Facility RV Investigator, the Integrated Marine Observatory System and external stakeholders, and; • Provide and test a multi-disciplinary research-based teaching module for marine science postgraduates with opportunities for student mobility and national network development.
2098 [view] Jawahar Patil CARP Sex Determination 2004 to 2006 The Murray-Darling Basin Commitee is supporting the Pest Animal Control Cooperative Research Centre and its research partner CSIRO Marine Research to undertake the $3m daughterless carp project. The project falls within the Commission's ambitious Native fish strategy, designed to increase the levels of native fish in the Basin's waterways from a current low of 10% of the estimated level at European settlement to 60% over a 50-year period. Initially, the 'daughterless carp' project concentrates of proving the concept that a population can be reduced by introduction of exclusively male-bearing fish. The research is at very early stage and is using a model species, Gambusia (mosquito fish) in the first instance. The proposed Ph.D. program involves baseline research on the sexual development of carp, which will provide important inputs to the next phase of the project. Expected to investigate aspects of: - Morphological development of gonods in carp - Effect of temperature on sex ratios - Expression profile of candidate genes and their potential role in sex differentiation / determination - Isolation and charaterisation of primodial gonad stem cells

The compactus has six bays, and holds research vessel log sheets collected in: 1950s - Vessel Logs including biological observations + Pearl shell measurements. 1960s - Vessel Logs including biological observations + commercial Tuna and Northern Prawn. 1970s, 1980s and 1990s - Vessel Logs including biological observations. There are a few papers relating to data collected as early as 1938. Stevie Davenport reviewed and collated the data creating folders of field data sheets withe a TRIM record created. Scanned PDFs were created. These scan were linked to the records. The final aim of the project is to have a Marlin record for each data set, and as the need arises, have individual CMAR projects transcribe the data, and then add these data to the CMAR Data Warehouse. Additional work was done in 2011 and 2012. Preliminary 2009 data is archived in internal dc-project_data. Data is archived c/o Datacentre /process/data_files/BioData.

The two quality types envisaged are an early product containing high levels of SDA, and a subsequent product having significant levels of EPA & DHA. These products will greatly expand the dietary sources of nutritionally important É3 LC-PUFA fatty acids currently obtainable only from marine sources. To achieve this requires the assembly in plants of a complete metabolic pathway for synthesis of É3 LC-PUFAs (such as SDA, EPA & DHA) that plants do not currently make. Project 1B1 aims to clone all the genes involved in the biosynthetic pathway that will convert linolenic acid sequentially into SDA, EPA and DHA, and to incorporate high levels of these É3 LC-PUFAs on storage triglycerides in oilseeds.

    201 [view] David Rochford, plus successors Coastal Monitoring Programme 1942- 1942 The CSIRO coastal monitoring program established a network of sampling stations from the 1940s and 1950s onwards, for the purpose of collecting long time-series of coastal temperature, salinity and nutrient data from south-eastern and south-western Australian coastal waters. Sampling at most of these stations involved collection of regular water samples from a 50m water column at intervals of between one and approximately 6 weeks, at 10m depth intervals between the surface (0m) and 50m (or 100m+ in a few cases). Sampling ceased at many of the coastal stations in the 1950s-1960s but some new stations were sampled in the 1970s. Four stations were still operational Port Hacking 50m, Port Hacking 100m (NSW), Rottnest Island (WA) and Maria Island (Tas) when the sampling was taken over by IMOS in April 2009, giving a continuous record of around 60 years' oceanographic data from these sites.

    2466 [view] Michael Ellwood, April Abbott Constraining external iron inputs and cycling in the southern extension of the East Australian Current 2018 Scientific objectives The East Australian Current (EAC) is a major western boundary current that moves southward along the eastern margin of Australia. This current is climatically and biologically important as it exercises control over heat and nutrient distribution. The EAC is nutrient depleted to the north, but as it travels south, it entrains iron from a variety of sources – including riverine, sediment resuspension, eddies, lateral exchange of shelf waters, frontal jets and atmospheric dust inputs thereby elevating the concentration of dissolved iron. When the EAC reaches its southern extent, it breaks up to form eddy-like structures that become incorporated into the Subtropical Front (STF). The STF forms the boundary between warmer nutrient-depleted subtropical water and cool nutrient-rich Southern Ocean water. The waters southwest of Tasmania are nutrient-rich but depleted in dissolved iron, which is a typical characteristic of High Nutrient Low Chlorophyll (HNLC) regions within the Southern Ocean. In springtime, large phytoplankton blooms can be seen associated with a mingling of nutrient-depleted EAC waters with nutrient-rich, but iron depleted Southern Ocean waters in the vicinity of the STF east of Tasmania. Therefore, changes to the EAC caused by climatic shifts will have implications on elemental cycling, production, and local climate. We will assess the relationships between production and nutrient supply in the modern ocean while simultaneously improving our interpretations of past ocean records from the region. The aims of this voyage are to: • Assess the sources of external iron to the southern extension of the EAC • Compare and contrast the biogeochemistry of EAC waters with HNLC waters located southwest of Tasmania; • Determine the role of ‘new’ (externally sourced iron) versus ‘recycled’ iron in regulating springtime productivity across the STF; • Test the sensitivity of neodymium and thorium isotope sedimentary records to local sedimentary processes.

Use of the Creative Access Tool is intended to streamline requests for forecasts data. Such requests include those originating from external customers or internal validation requests (i.e., for improving forecasting models). A pilot study has been underway (2003-2004) to establish the 'proof-of-concept' for the Creative Access Tool. However, the operational version (this proposal) aims to significantly extend the pilot study in the following ways: - Access to 'live' forecast data - Creation of images, netCDF and text files extracted 'on-demand' from the database - Comparison of different datasets (e.g., compare forecasts against observations). - Compatibility with the division's metadata conventions The Creative Access Tool should be viewed as a important component of the Climate Modeling and Applications group, since it facilitates the delivery of weather forecast data products to customers.

We will achieve this by combining geophysical data collected from this voyage, with previously collected bathymetric and sub-bottom profile data and sediment cores to: (A) Improve the bathymetric datasets available for the GBR continental slope and construct a comprehensive new inventory of the key landslides and canyons and their detailed geomorphic traits. (B) Provide information at the regional-scale regarding the sedimentary processes and evolution of the margin, as a crucial first step towards understanding landslide susceptibility, tsunami hazard and improved risk assessments. (C) Characterise the canyon systems on the far northern GBR to allow comparisons with the better-studied canyons on the central GBR, with respect to their geomorphic variability, gradients and relationship to shelf-edge reefs. (D) Provide new data to construct and validate numerical, basin-scale, stratigraphic forward models used to test sedimentary source-to-sink processes in this mixed siliciclastic-carbonate setting. (E) Provide the site survey data for a future International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) Ancillary Project Letter (APL) proposal, to core the canyon deposits and recover coarse-grained, shallow-water carbonate sediments shed from the shelf, to better constrain the timing of the onset of the GBR.

    2192 [view] Jessica Farley Developing age-length keys for the Australian SBT surface fishery based on direct age estimations using otoliths 2005 to 2005 CSIRO has developed techniques to accurately estimate the age of SBT using otoliths (Gunn et al., in prep). The key object of the current proposal is to use these techniques to estimate the age of a subsample of SBT caught in the Australian surface fishery in the Great Australian Bight, and to construct an age-length key for the fishery to meet our CCSBT comitment. Although the CCSBT's immediate request is estimate the age of SBT sampled from the 2001-2 season, the ultimate goal is to estimate the age of SBT from the Australian catch annually. Since the number of otoliths collected during 2001-2 was relatively low (n=188) and very few small or large fish were sampled, the proposal also aims to include samples from the 2002-3 and 2003-4 seasons. This would allow a more robust analysis and construction of age-length keys for the fishery. We propose to determine the age of approximately 360 SBT under this project (120 from each of three seasons), and develop age-length keys for each of the three fishing seasons. Note that the CCSBT request for this type of information is ongoing, so that otoliths for the more recent season (2003-4) woul d have to be analysed in any case. At the CCSBT SC meeting in 2003, Morton and Bravington (2003) reported that between 100-200 otoliths from the furface fishery would be sufficient to provide accceptable precision (CVs under 20%). Otolith reading techniques developed by CSIRO were transfered to the Central Ageing Facility (CAF) in Victoria, as part of the CCSBTs Age Estimation Workshop (Anon, 2002), and SBT sampled from the Indonesian longline fishery are already routinely aged by the CAF under a separate AFMA funding source. We propose to that CSIRO would select and extract SBT otoliths from the CSIRO hardparts archives that were collected from the Australian surface fishery, and arrange for them to be sent to the CAF for age estimation. The analysis of the direct age data will include consideration of the approach developed Developing age-length keys for Aust SBT

The impetus for this research was the growing interest in Australia in the potential for stock-enhancement of penaeid fisheries with hatchery reared juveniles. In any stock- enhancement program some means of differentiating between introduced and wild prawns is needed to monitor the effectiveness of the program. Many different types of tags have been used in fisheries, but none are suitable for penaeid reseeding. For prawns, the tags would ideally be: able to mark individuals at all life history stages; unique to the local population; inexpensive and quick to apply and detect; either transmissible or non-transmissible to subsequent generations; and harmless to both the prawn and consumer (Rothlisberg and Preston 1992). This project examined whether novel chemical and genetic tags could meet these criteria and hence provide a means of monitoring the success of prawn stock-enhancement programs.

High-throughput sequencing offers a novel approach compared to traditional microscopy for determining species assemblages and distributions of dinoflagellates, which are poorly known especially in Australian waters.
    The major aims for data collection activities during this voyage are:
  • 1. collect water samples at night for taxonomic and molecular identification of dinoflagellate species;
  • 2. record and compare environmental and physical characteristics (water quality parameters, sea state, wind, moonlight) against observed species composition / abundance; and
  • 3. record and compare environmental and physical characteristics (water quality parameters, sea state, wind, moonlight) against observed bioluminescence activity

    2139 [view] John Parslow ESA - Sustainable Marine Ecosystems Framework 2004 to 2007 The Goal is to establish robust tools for multiple-use management of marine resources. Marine ecosystems and their healthy functioning are the basis of marine industries and a multitude of human services and uses. These uses and services affect the marine ecosystem, as well as providing the human benefits sought. Achieving sustainable benefits relies on getting the balance of use and impacts right. In the past, each use and impact has been assessed and managed more or less in isolation, and this misses a crucial point - that the human socioeconomic system and the ecosystem supporting them are interacting systems and ultimately they must be treated holistically. Conserving Australia's unique natural marine heritage in the face of mounting multiple-use pressures requires a sound scientific underpinning. Especially important is a sophisticated understanding of the processes that link current and prospective human-induced pressures with economic response. This is not a new lesson - on land Australiahas learned this the hard way and is now confronted with repairing fractured ecosystems and loss of productive land at huge cost. CMR is an acknowledged world-leader in multiple use management of marine ecosystems (as recognised by Dr Keith Sainsbury's Japan Prize). The science will provide: risk assessments, incorporate uncertainties, and test the ability of proposed management strategies to deliver desired outcomes for management of Australia's most sensitive and valuable marine regions; consolidate and improve the scientific methods to measure, predict and evaluate strategies for multiple-use management at the national level; and, develop international collaboration and case studies to enhance Australia's capacity and capability, and to build international application opportunities for Australian science.

Underway bathymetric data will be used to refine dredge targets. 2)Collect sediment cores across a depth transect to enable work investigating paleo-oceanographic conditions using proxies. Preferably at least a multicore proximal to IODP site 1172, and piston cores at the mid- and shallow-depth sites. 3)Collect high resolution swath bathymetry and sub-bottom profile data to see how far recent sediment flows extend from the Cascade Seamount towards IODP site 1172, to test the hypothesis that downslope transport resulted in the observed sediment patterns in core 1172. Existing coverage and resolution of bathymetry across the East Tasman Plateau is insufficient to resolve this question. 4)CTD to complement the sediment core data if possible. Alternative is for clean underway surface supply samples to be taken where CTD not possible.

    2165 [view] Alistair Hobday Ecological Risk Assessment for Commonwealth Fisheries: Stage 2 2004 to 2006 In October 2001, AFMA initiated a process to develop ecological risk assessments for its managed fisheries. The project, entitled Ecological Risk Assessment for Commonwealth Fisheries (ERACF) completed its first phase in July 2004. Stage 1 of the project involved the development of a method for undertaking ecological risk assessment for the effects of fishing (ERAEF), and its application to 14 of AFMA's fisheries (although full assessment has not been completed for all 14 fisheries). ERAEF is a hierarchical approach, moving from a broad but qualitative Level 1 analysis, known as SICA, through a semi-quantitative Level 2 (PSA), to a fully quantitative Level 3 analysis. At each level, lower risk activities and ecological components and units are screened out, while higher risks are either dealt with through a risk mitigation management response, or are evaluated at the next level. Moving to a higher level of analysis reduces the uncertainty, but is more demanding in terms of data, time and costs of analysis. Stage 1 of the project developed and applied the Level 1 and Level 2 analyses, but did not apply the Level 3 analyses to any fisheries. Further, the Level 2 analyses that were conducted for 20 sub-fisheries did not incorporate additional fishery specific data (such as catch data or spatial analysis of effort). The current Level 2 is based on general attributes of species and habitats often derived from Fish Base or from the literature. In addition, external review of the method identified improvements that could be made to the Level 2 analyses that would help further reduce the uncertainties associated with risk estimates. Although management actions can be taken on the basis of the current Level 1 and 2 analyses, AFMA has asked for further analyses at Level 2 before requesting MACs to advise on risk mitigation measures and responses. Stage 2 of the ERACF project is intended to address these issues by continuing the development of the ERAEF method and its appli Ecological Risk Assessment Stage 2

    2561 [view] Ben Scoulding, Rudy Kloser Ecological and carbon sequestration role of mesopelagic organisms in the Southern Ocean 2020 The small crustaceans, squids, fishes and gelatinous organisms that make up micronekton are a key biological component of the worlds’ oceans many making nightly migrations from mesopelagic 200-1000 m depths to the surface epipelagic 0-200m depths. Understanding their diversity, distribution, biomass and energetic needs are key to further understanding the carbon cycle and linking primary production to top predators. Commonly nets, optic and acoustic samplers are used to determine the taxonomy, size, biomass, trophic linkage and energetics of zooplankton and micronekton. Each of these sampling methods have bias and uncertainty that need to be quantified prior to attributing changes within and between regions. In particular for the gelatinous community that covers a wide range of taxonomic and energetic groups that are difficult to sample with nets. To improve vessel mounted acoustic and net sampling methods of macro-zooplankton and micronekton a new profiling multi-frequency acoustic optical system has been developed with the ultimate aim of it being used as a remote sampling tool. On this voyage we will be testing the next phase of a profiling lagrangian acoustic and optical probe (PLAOS) to sample these organisms to depths of 1000 m. These tests will involve detailed sampling of the repeatability of the measurements when varying lighting, using new broadband acoustic sensors and a new buoyancy engine to enable the system to do repeat profiles. A RMT8 single wire net will be used to capture micronekton for species identification and isotope studies. Development of this methodology and technology will significantly advance our knowledge of micronekton biomass and distribution and provide the necessary structure and function understanding for the development of carbon and ecosystem models of the open ocean linking to the ACE CRC carbon program as well as the MESOPP ecosystem program. It is envisaged that the majority of the sampling will be done at night for both the PLAOS and net sampling working around the other projects as needed. We envisage ~10-12 PLAOS deployments and ~5 net deployments during the voyage.

    2499 [view] Rachel Przeslawski Environmental baselines for Wessel Marine Park, northern Australia 2019 This project aims to collect and analyse valuable environmental baseline information in a data-poor marine park. Specifically, we will use a combination of multibeam sonar and towed imagery to map the seafloor and characterise seafloor habitats in a northern area in the Wessel Marine Park region. Collected data will be combined with the limited data available from previous surveys, as well as museum records, to test assumptions about the Wessel Marine Park drawn from the 2018 management plan. These assumptions are: (A) Includes some of the most diverse environments in the North Marine Region. (B) Includes some of the most species-rich environments in the North Marine Region. (C) Supports a number of endemic species. (D) Acts as a transition point for sessile invertebrate and fish species. In addition, we will test the hypothesis that the raised seabed features (banks, shoals) in the park are relict reefs that formed at lower sea levels in the early Holocene period (ca. 12,000 to 7,000 years before present). Results from this study will inform detailed implementation plans to be developed by the Department of Environment and Energy over the next 10 years. In particular, this study will expand the currently limited species inventory from the region, contribute to an assessment of the significance of raised geomorphic features in the park, and identify geomorphic features, habitats, or communities of interest.

    2588 [view] Katherina Petrou Estimates of silica production within mixed phytoplankton communities along a latitudinal gradient of Eastern Australia. 2021 The primary goal of this project is to obtain community and species-specific estimates of silica production within mixed natural phytoplankton communities along a latitudinal gradient of Eastern Australia. Therefore, there are two specific aims of this project: 1) To determine bulk rates of silicification in phytoplankton communities from latitudinally distinct bioregions (SOTS providing a southern-most site). 2) To evaluate species-specific silicification to identify the heavy weights within the community. With this information in hand we can start to build a more complete picture of silicon cycling in regionally distinct oceanographic waters of Australia. Water sampling: We will collect 10L seawater from chl max and 10L from surface from one of the CTD casts at each of the two SOTS sites. If a DCM (deep chl max) is detected, we would like to also to sample 10L from that depth. CTD sampling will be done via silicon tubing into a carboy. Sampling can be done after hydrochemistry sampling is completed.

    2626 [view] Phil Vandenbossche Evolution of the Seafloor of the Australian-Antarctic Southern Ocean 2023 The seafloor in the Southern Ocean records a 100+ million-year history of plate tectonic motions between Australia and Antarctica. Most of what we know about these plate tectonic motions and the formation of the seafloor, comes from satellite gravity data and ship-track magnetic data. However, in the past decade, progressively more multibeam (‘swath’) bathymetry data has been collected across vast swathes of the Australian Southern Ocean, particularly offshore southwestern Tasmania (in the SOTS – Southern Ocean Time Series region) and to the southwest of Perth (from the search for missing Malaysia Airliner, MH370). These datasets provide detailed high-resolution information of the seafloor morphology across two areas of a similar age on the Australian plate but formed at opposite ends of the tectonic spreading system. This presents a unique opportunity to study and compare the seafloor at these locations, which will yield valuable new information as to how the seafloor has accreted and been influenced by processes such as plate tectonic motions, settings and reorganisations, mantle plumes, long-wavelength mantle flow as well as mantle geochemistry and temperature. This project therefore aims to provide new research insights into the evolution of the seafloor of the Australian-Antarctic Southern Ocean and East Gondwana region. There are two primary objectives that will augment existing data in support of this research: 1. Acquire towed magnetometer data between the Tasman Fracture Zone and SOTS site (in an NNE-SSW orientation), as part of the transit to/from SOTS. No physical rock dating is known to exist in the study area and therefore magnetic data will provide valuable indicative ages of the seafloor crust across the region. 2. Acquire multibeam bathymetry data in areas previously unmapped. Areas to target lie to the west and south of the SOTS site. This will extend the seafloor mapping coverage in the region, thereby providing valuable new bathymetry data that will be used to analyse the seafloor morphology and tectonic fabric (and contribute to the International Seabed 2030 project).
    2094 [view] John Gunn Examining the movement and residency of adult SBT in the Tasman Sea and on their spawning grounds south of Indonesia using pop-up archival tags 2004 to 2007 This proposal (and a sister project run under the CCSBT SRP using conventional tags on fish released by the Australian domestic longline fishery) seeks to address key questions regarding the movements and residency patterns of adult SBT in the Tasman Sea: 1. How long do adult SBT spend in the Tasman Sea each winter? 2. How do they move away from the Tasman Sea  via New Zealand, or south past the Tasmanian east coast? 3. Do individuals return to the Tasman Sea each winter? 4. Do all adult SBT make a migration to the spawning grounds each year? 5. Are there discrete areas in the NE Indian Ocean where SBT spawn (that could be closed to fishing as a method of controlling the take of SBT in the Indonesian fishery)? 6. How long do individuals spend on the spawning grounds? The proposal will use methods and tags tested and successfully used overseas on Atlantic Bluefin by researchers at Stanford University, USA and in Australia on black marlin, SBT and Bigeye tuna by CSIRO scientists (Gunn and Block 2002, Gunn et al. 2003). The project is designed to run for three years, releasing 25 tags in the first year, and a total of 35 over the following two years. Analyses will be reported annually to the CCSBT Stock Assessment Group and Scientific Committee, and the final report will be presented to the CCSBT and submitted for international peer review. The project results (ie. habitat preference and movement data collected by the PATs) will also feed directly into adaptive management models currently being developed as a collaboration between AFMA and CSIRO to assist the delineation of restricted access areas within the East Coast Tuna and Billfish Fishery (ET&BF) at times SBT are migrating up the Australian east coast.

    2516 [view] Katherine Walters Exploring different science communication strategies for engaging the public in marine science 2017 Science communication traditionally uses the "knowledge deficit" model, which assumes that if people simply understand the science, they'll care about its implications. However, there's a great deal of recent research (particularly regarding climate change) to suggest this is NOT the case, and that changing people's attitudes and behaviours may require different strategies such as moral framing, narrative, or even the use of marketing tools. All of this has to be attempted in the changing media landscape which includes social and new media, making the science communicator's job rather challenging! I would like to test some of the above strategies by following the journeys of the scientists – or if this is not possible, following the journey of the science which is undertaken on board IN2017-T01, and sharing these journeys with the public by use of a variety of written and visual styles (for example: blog posts, short videos, infographics, curated image / twitter stories, etc.).

    2497 [view] Dirk Erler First measurements of nitrate isotopic composition in the Coral Sea 2019 Upwelling is known to be an important source of nitrate to the outer reef ecosystems of the GBR. However, the frequency and duration of upwelling events, as well as the penetration of nitrate rich water into the GBR lagoon is poorly understood because of a lack of long-term records. It is now possible to reconstruct spatial and temporal patterns of upwelling at the century-scale using a new coral skeleton isotopic technique. However, this technique is fundamentally reliant on knowing the nitrogen isotopic content of deep ocean nitrate in the Coral Sea. To date, no such data exists for the Coral Sea adjacent to the GBR. This project aims to measure the nitrogen isotopic content of nitrate in the Coral Sea.

The project will access existing CMR (and other MPA) monitoring datasets from the partners for the Southeast Marine Bioregion (i.e. Freycinet, Huon, Tasman Fracture and Zeehan CMRs and Maria Island MPA) and thereby attempt to extend the spatial coverage of survey and monitoring methods to include all depths and habitat-types contained in the Commonwealth Southeast Marine Reserve Network (excepting the abyssal plain) - taken from http://www.nerpmarine.edu.au/project/project-2-analysis-approaches-monitoring-biodiversity-commonwealth-waters
    2601 [view] Allison McInnes Flow cytometric classification of the phytoplankton community 2022
    2597 [view] Allison McInnes Flow cytometric classification of the phytoplankton community across Australia’s top end 2021 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.
  • Due to COVID-19 participant restrictions, the Cytek Aurora is not able to be installed onboard
  • A modified sampling program has been included to try and facilitate this work, with samples collected to be freighted back to Brisbane upon arrival in Darwin.

    The Global Atmosphere Watch Programme (https://public.wmo.int/en/programmes/global-atmosphere-watch-programme) monitors and studies the variability and trends in the composition of the global atmosphere and the related physical parameters and assesses their consequences. The foremost challenges for the Global Atmosphere Watch include gaining understanding of:

  • stratospheric ozone depletion and the increase of ultraviolet (UV) radiation;
  • the changes in the weather and climate due to the impact of human activities on atmospheric composition, especially on greenhouse gas, ozone and aerosol levels, and
  • the risks of air pollution on human health and other issues related to atmospheric deposition and the long-range transport of air pollution, and how to reduce these.

Science Objectives: Iron supply limits oceanic primary production in the Southern Ocean as well as elsewhere in the global ocean. We aim to test the hypothesis that hydrothermal activity driven by active submarine magmatism fertilises surface waters with iron thereby enhancing biological productivity. Heard and McDonald Islands on the Kerguelen Plateau are among the world’s most active hotspot volcanoes, and are type examples sourced from a particular geochemical component in the Earth’s mantle (enriched mantle 1, or EM1). Existing data indicate that fields of submarine volcanoes extend for several hundred kilometres away from the islands. We will produce three-dimensional, high-resolution bathymetric, backscatter, and sub-seafloor maps of the seafloor surrounding the islands in near-real time. From this mapping and data from geotagged seals indicating locations of anomalously warm bottom water, together with deep tow camera imaging and TRIAXUS sensor data, we will identify candidate active submarine volcanoes and hydrothermal systems, and sample these volcanoes and their surrounding shallow sediments. In the water column over and downstream of these active volcanoes/hydrothermal systems, we will measure temperatures and obtain water samples for geochemical and biogeochemical analyses that will indicate the presence or absence of associated hydrothermalism and iron and other elemental enrichment. We will also sample the deep boundary current that impinges on the eastern flank of the Plateau, to investigate the generation of internal waves that enhance mixing of surface and subsurface waters, providing a mechanism to deliver iron enriched waters to the surface downstream of the volcanoes. If hydrothermally derived iron and other micro-nutrients are ascending to surface waters, we will compare our data to contemporaneous shipboard and satellitederived estimates of phytoplankton productivity and biomass to test for positive temporal and spatial correlations. Should it be proven that hydrothermally derived iron exerts controls on the dynamics of plankton blooms, this will be the first demonstration of linkages between dynamic solid Earth processes (magmatism) and major biological processes (oceanic primary production). Plankton blooms, in turn, affect the biogeochemical cycles of carbon, nitrogen, silicon, and sulphur, and ultimately influence the Earth’s climate system. Our results could therefore open significant new avenues of research in the solid Earth-Earth’s biosphere domain, including investigations of both past (e.g., oceanic anoxic events) and future (e.g., high atmospheric CO2) extreme Earth environments. This is an extract from the in2016_v01 Voyage plan. HEOBI

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 expected recurrent blooms in relation to Maria Island NRS hydrological conditions, and compare this with the long time (1000+ yr) ancient DNA sediment record.

    2450 [view] Martina Doblin, Mark Brown Influence of temperature and nutrient supply on the biogeochemical function and diversity of ocean microbes 2016 RV Investigator research voyage in2016_v04, titled “Influence of temperature and nutrient supply on the biogeochemical function and diversity of ocean microbes.” The goal is to resolve how changes in seawater temperature and nutrient concentrations, linked to shifting oceanographic circulation in eastern Australia, influences the diversity of microbial communities and the key biogeochemical transformations (C, N, P, Si, Fe and S) they mediate. The broader ecosystem implications for zooplankton, larval fish and marine megafauna will also be addressed. Findings will be used to improve current biogeochemical and ecosystem models to increase their accuracy in forecasting changes in ocean productivity and biogeochemical fluxes in eastern Australia. Scientific Objectives: 1. Characterise the diversity and function of microbial communities in the relatively warm EAC, against the relatively cool water of the Tasman Sea and adjacent shelf waters. 2. Conduct perturbation experiments to experimentally test the role of temperature and nutrients (particularly N and Fe) in microbially mediated biogeochemical transformations. 3. Assess the links between microbial biomass, size structure and carbon production with higher trophic levels zooplankton, micronekton and cetaceansseabirds) in a frontal eddy(ies) relative to adjacent shelf and EAC waters. 4. Sample sediments to examine water-sediment geochemical processes and historical record of plankton. For more details see the Voyage Plan.

    2522 [view] Anya Waite Inorganic Nitrogen uptake 2016 The scientific objective of this work is to map, for the first time, the genomic characteristic of marine bacteria and phytoplankton along 170°W, as part of a larger set of surveys being carried out around Australia. While we are getting better insights in the microbial community and their taxonomy, uptake and rate measurements of N and C are still very sparse throughout the wold oceans and are a high priority to accurately quantify C, N cycles and the associated primary productivity. Especially as we have to keep in mind that numerically outnumbered microbes can play a significant role in the N and C cycles of their ecosystem. Previous studies have shown that the least abundant species (in this case the anaerobic, phototropic bacteria Chromatium okenii representing ~0.3% of the total cell numbers), can contribute more than 40% of the total NH4+assimilation and up to 70% of the total C fixation. We will investigate the role of microbes in the N uptake. While we may be able to get presence absence using techniques such as quantitative polymerase chain reactions (qPCR), metagenomics or high through put sequencing, isotopes (stable isotopes) are necessary to measure rates of nutrient utilization/remineralization. We will take water from the level 02 flow through system near the Isotope Lad (Radvan). No special requirements with regards to the vessel’s course or speed are required. All sampling will be aligned with the CTD stations.

    2463 [view] Bernadette Sloyan, Chris Chapman Integrated Marine Observing System: monitoring of East Australian Current property transports at 27 degrees South (multi-year) 2018 to 2018 The East Australian Current (EAC) is a complex and highly energetic western boundary system of the South Pacific Ocean off eastern Australia. It closes the South Pacific subtropical gyre, transporting heat, salt and other nutrients southward and onto the continental shelf. Off Brisbane (27o S) the EAC, is north of the high eddy variability region, approaches its maximum strength and is relatively uniform and coherent. The mooring array is located near the existing long-term XBT transect and satellite altimetry ground tracks. The aim of this observing system is to capture the mean and time-varying flow of the EAC. This EAC mooring array is a component of IMOS. These observations will provide an intensive reference set of measurements of the EAC over a sustained period for improved understanding of the relationship of EAC with the basin-scale South Pacific gyre, its impact of the coastal marine ecosystem, and validation and interpretation of the current system in numerous climate and ocean models.

    2514 [view] Ryan Beemer Interdisciplinary characterisation of the macro-mechanical behaviour of offshore sediments from Northern Australia 2017 The behaviour of offshore sediments under load is very important to understand from an engineering prospective. It will dictate whether a submarine slope will fail and result in a tsunami. It will also determine the size of anchors needed to secure a renewable energy infrastructure. In spite of this importance very little public data on the mechanical properties of offshore Northern Australian soil is available to researchers. This project aims to collect and study the geotechnical behaviour of offshore soils in Northern Australia and make it available to the public. It will provide valuable data for researchers trying to understand and predict submarine landslides and for engineers researching anchoring systems for renewable energy systems. We propose collecting three box cores, with the Octopus box corer (Currently on board), at three different locations along the transit route. Our goal is to collect samples with high quantities of benthic or planktonic foraminifera with the specific goal of understand how the variation in the soils bio geology impacts their mechanical properties. This should be easily achieved across the majority of Northern and North West Australia.

The analysis of seawater nutrients is completed all over the world, conducted with many different instruments and methodologies. This voyage will assist in the furthering of knowledge on the analysis as well as allowing different groups to highlight differences between attained results. With close collaboration between potentially 5 scientific parties, the science of seawater nutrient analysis can be improved or refined upon. Many aspects of this analysis will be studied, spanning from the collection of water to the final data processing. This international collaboration is beneficial for all involved, allowing all teams to advance their analysis techniques. The impact of this voyage will be the improved knowledge of nutrient analysis techniques, potentially meaning future data will be of higher accuracy and precision, lowering the uncertainty associated with analysis of samples.

    2558 [view] Michael Elwood Iron Biogeochemical Cycling at the Southern Ocean Time Series Site 2020 The subantarctic water mass forms a circumpolar ring which comprises half of the open waters of the Southern Ocean. Complex environmental forcing controls its productivity, ecology and biogeochemistry both in the present day and in the geological past. An improved mechanistic understanding of these controls on the marine biota is needed and will provide the context to better interpret observations being obtained at unparalleled resolution by the SOTS moorings. Our study will forge strong links with SOTS by determining how environmental forcing manifests itself in biological and biogeochemical signatures across a range of scales. A better understanding of this relationship will aid the development of a state-of-the-art coupled iron and carbon biogeochemical model which will be validated using future multi-property time-series observations. Our main aim is to enhance our understanding of the interlinked biogeochemical cycles of iron and carbon in the Southern Ocean to better understand how intra-seasonal, seasonal and interannual variability in iron supply and recycling influences the productivity and export of carbon into the ocean’s interior in the subantarctic circumpolar ring. Additional aims include: • Elucidation of the relative roles of iron supply versus biological and photochemical recycling in driving subantarctic primary productivity and export fluxes. • Resolution of the interplay of multiple environmental controls – irradiance, mixed layer depth, trace element supply (zinc, copper etc.), silicate supply, iron availability – across a range of temporal and spatial scales – to better predict changes in rates of primary productivity. • Enhancement of knowledge on the interplay of mesoscale and submesoscale physics and biogeochemistry in the vicinity of the SOTS site to better understand the degree of coupling and integration of surface ocean processes with those in the subsurface ocean (such as the sensors and particle traps on the SOTS mooring). • Quantification of the aeolian flux of micronutrients to the sea surface, using direct sampling of aerosols, rain, water column measurements of dissolved and particulate (from large volume ISP pumps) 232Th and 230Th concentrations, and beryllium-7 water sampling from the CTD.

Link the rates of carbon export and remineralisation (Aim 1) to the microbial community changes (Aim 2) through experiments under controlled conditions. The oceanographic characteristics of the previously sampled areas are dramatically different to the Coral Sea, however, the oligotrophic areas of the ocean, as the Coral Sea, are expected to expand with the prediction of a future warmer ocean. Additionally, these oceanic regions have been disregarded when referring to carbon export, but recent research has shown that subtropical regions with picoplankton-dominated food webs are characterised by enhanced export efficiencies. The results from this project will deepen our understanding of carbon export and the impact of the microbial community in the carbon export efficiency in oligotrophic waters, which will help constrain the marine carbon cycle and should benefit future climate models.

    2459 [view] John Keesing, Roland Pitcher, Keith Sainsbury Long-term recovery of trawled marine communities 25 years after the world’s largest adaptive management experiment. 2017 By contrasting the diversity, abundance, biomass and size/age composition of the demersal fish community and epibenthic, habitat forming invertebrates across these gradients of historical and recent fishing effort, and by comparing these data with that collected in the 1980s using the same methods, we aim to make firm conclusions about the rates of recovery of trawled communities and the sustainability of trawling. We will test the prediction that areas where trawling effort has ceased or has been dramatically reduced will be characterised by re-establishment of benthic habitats with greater coverage, biomass and complexity of larger habitat-forming filter-feeder communities, and of higher production of key demersal fish species (families: Lethrinidae, Lutjanidae) since comparative surveys in the 1980s. The study will also take into account other environmental gradients (i.e. depth, substrate/habitat type, hydrodynamic forcing at the seabed, pelagic productivity which may influence both the distribution of benthic and demersal community assemblages and their rates of recovery.

    2515 [view] David Steinberg Macumba Wreck 2017 The search for the Macumba will be based on a grid search area defined by the interpretation of historic marks and discounting areas previously searched. The size of the search area and the methodology used will, in part, be informed by the tools available and also the amount of time committed to the task. It is hoped that 6-12 hours searching and recording can be committed to the task although if successful early, less overall time will be required. If the voyage can only commit to passing through the search area once, or a far limited number of times, this is still a worthwhile exercise. In a multi beam or side scan sonar survey the lanes will be defined by the sonar coverage, taking into account the need for overlap to accommodate the gap beneath the sonar fish itself. As the sea bed terrain in the general area is flat it’s surmised that there will be little topography to create shadows and complicate interpreting the signal. We appreciate that multi beam is provided and the Heritage Branch can supply a side scan sonar if need be. Other than the side scan and multi-beam another commonly used tool is a magnetometer. Magnetometers are particularly good in search for the search of iron and steel wrecks. A search pattern within the search area using a magnetometer will be similar, with a fish towed following predetermined lanes. The magnetometer signal will be significant as this is a 2,500 ton steel ship in a relatively shallow seabed, although the device will need to be adjusted to accommodate the high ambient noise of the areas ferrous geology. A basic calculation taking into account the magnetometer, the size of the vessel and the depth of the water will determine the search lanes. Once the wreck is located the multi beam and/or side scan sonar will be used to take multiple impressions of the wreck. Adjusting the run of the ship will provide multiple perspectives of this complex archaeological site. ROV cameras are not listed on the ship equipment list, but other partners may be sourced to provide this. Remote video has been used on marine life surveys of wrecks in the Northern Territory previously. The ship’s bottom profilers will be used to determine heights of the seabed and wreckage to provide a profile of the wreck and guide future dive operations. Once the wreck is located and a series of side scan runs over the wreck completed any further research on the marine survey of the wreck can be supported. Biological surveys may focus on the biodiversity of surface life, water column and wreck dwelling species. Side scan sonar can capture the scale and location of a ‘bait ball’ for example. ROV can be used to record wreck dwelling species and benthic life. Remote wreck surveys provide unique challenges for both maritime archaeologists and marine biologists, and the Macumba project will provide an opportunity to develop synergies and shape strategies to record these complex sites.

    2481 [view] Neville Barrett Mapping of the Beagle Commonwealth Marine Park 2019 Two 5 x 5 km2areas of seabed were proposed to be surveyed by multibeam sonar within the Beagle Marine Park. This survey component was intended to compliment a recent survey of this marine park by the NESP Marine Biodiversity Hub that uses a spatially-balanced sub-sampling design to understand the nature and extent of seabed habitats within the park. Prior to these surveys, very little was known around the extent of seabed habitats within the park. As it would take several months to fully map the park, a sub-sampling approach was taken instead, to be able to infer the overall extent and distribution of habitats based on a spatially-balanced sampling design, without the need and expense of fully mapping the park. The 2018 Hub survey completed approximately 14 of these 5 x 5 km sample sites, out of an optimal target of 20.Remaining sites were prioritised for completion during the IN2019_V07 voyage, if time allowed.

    2557 [view] Rachel Rice, Natasha Pastor Marine Mammal Observations 2020 Purpose: To conduct Marine Mammal Observations for the duration of the voyage. Description of proposed work: As marine mammal observers, Rice and Pastor (College of the Atlantic, USA) will monitor, record, and report sightings of marine mammals within visual range of RV Investigator during times of operation. During scheduled shifts, they will record sightings and include supporting data such as time, distance, location, species, and animal behavior. These data will be provided to the Chief Scientist, the MNF, and the Australian Antarctic Division in addition to a final report at the conclusion of the voyage summarizing the sighting data. Monitoring for marine mammals will provide real time information regarding location and behavior of marine mammals that enter the work area of the vessel. To date, sixteen cetacean species have been recorded near Macquarie Island: killer whale (Orcinus orca), long-finned pilot whale (Globicephala melas), sperm whale (Physeter macrocephalus), southern right whale (Eubalaena australis), humpback whale (Megaptera novaeangliae), minke whale (Balaenoptera sp.), Arnoux’s beaked whale (Berardius arnuxii), strap-toothed beaked whale (Mesoplodon layardii), fin whale (Balaenoptera physalis), sei whale (Balaenoptera borealis), Andrew’s beaked whale (Mesoplodon bowdoini), Blainville’s beaked whale (Mesoplodon densirostris), Cuvier’s beaked whale (Ziphius cavirostris), southern right-whale dolphin (Lissodelphis peronii), spectacled porpoise (Phocoena dioptrica), hourglass dolphin (Lagenorhynchus cruciger). Also, five species of seals have been recorded in the area: Antarctic fur seal (Arctocephalus gazella), sub-Antarctic fur seal (Arctocephalus tropicalis), New Zealand fur seal (Arctocephalus forsteri), southern elephant seal (Mirounga leonina), and Hooker’s sea lion (Phocarctos hookeri). Few observations have been conducted in the vicinity of Macquarie Island in the autumnal late March-mid-April timeframe, as most previous observations have been typically undertaken in summer. Hence significant new data will be acquired.

Determination of the composition of marine oils from underexploited pelagic and other species, with particular reference to: 1. identifying optimum sources of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids and other specialty oils (e.g. diacylglycerol ethers from deep-sea and other sharks), and 2. assisting industry to develop products from these oils and specific oil fractions. Examination and optimization of methods for further refining squalene-containing and omega-3 containing marine oils, thereby increasing product value. The techniques developed will be broad-based and transferable between fish species and the developing field of single cell oils (SCO) derived from microorganisms. This aspect of the project will include evaluation and possible use of supercritical fluid extraction (SFE) and fractionation techniques. Marine oils from Australian fish

    2211 [view] Tennille Irvine Metabolic Consequences of Coral Reproduction 2005 to 2007 The purpose of this research is to quantify metabolic consequences of reproduction in zooxanthellate scleractinian corals at Ningaloo Reef and assess their vulnerability to stress during the reproductive period. These particular corals form a symbiosis with a diverse and dynamic population of autotrophic dinoflagellate algae known as zooxanthellae. Literature indicates that metabolic responses of isolated zooxanthellae are significantly different to that of the intact association (Gardella and Edmunds, 1999); however the greater part of research examines the former. This research aims to better understand the metabolic responses of the intact coral-algae association. Metabolic Consequences of Coral Reproduction

Plastic pollution of oceanic ecosystems can be observed anywhere on the planet, but microplastics create a global biological and chemical hazard due to their propensity to be ingested by marine life that is later consumed by humans. Small plastics can also adhere onto the surface of micro-organisms that are preyed upon by higher levels of the oceanic food chain such as fish. The aims of the project are (i) to assess the amount of plastics (micro through to pico in size) present in blue waters around Australia and (ii) to identify their impact on microorganisms at the base of the oceanic food chain.

    2443 [view] Bernadette Sloyan, Susan Wijffels Monitoring Ocean Change and Variability along 170W from the ice edge to the equator 2016 Monitoring Ocean Change and Variability along 170W from the ice edge to the equator. Principle Investigators also include: Bronte Tilbrook, Lev Bodrossy, Bec Cowley(CSIRO O&A)and Mark Warner, John Bullister (U. Washington, Seattle, WA USA). Scientific objectives: The full suite of key ocean parameters and the deep ocean heat and carbon reservoirs remain poorly measured. This proposal will complete full-depth, high-precision hydrographic, carbon, and tracer measurements, along 170oW from the sea-ice edge to the equator, to monitor and detect ocean variability and change including changes in the carbonate chemistry associated with acidification. These data, together with other observational data and numerical models, will allow for the detection and attribution of ocean change and variability and to assess the impact of the ocean on climate variability. This hydrographic section will monitor ocean change and variability by: 1. Directly measuring the full suite of ocean water properties (temperature, salinity, velocity, nutrients, tracers and ocean mixing) at high vertical and spatial resolution throughout the entire water column and in the deep boundary currents, contributing to the international GO-SHIP program 2. Providing high precision biogeochemical measurements to monitor changes in ocean carbon storage and oxygen concentrations, contributing to the IOCCP international program to monitor the global carbon budget. 3. Directly measure ocean mixing to improve our knowledge of the ocean Meridional Overturning Circulation. 4. Provide high precision baseline data to calibrate the Argo array, XBT program, and other autonomous observations (ocean gliders, moorings and satellites) in the vicinity of the section. 5. Deploy Argo floats for the core mission and contributions to the international SOCCOM project. 6. Obtain side-by-side CTD/XBT data for the assessment of bias errors in XBT measurements. This is an extract from the in2016_v01 voyage plan. This project is affiliated with previous projects "Deep Ocean measurements 2000-2001" and Deep Ocean Time Series Section (DOTSS). These two projects were associated with MNF voyages FR 05/2001 and SS200901 respectively.

    2170 [view] Barry Bruce Movement patterns of key apex predators in open ocean ecosystems 2004 to 2005 The open ocean ecosystems off eastern Australia support major fisheries. The region is a focus for the PFE research, with a range of current co-investment projects operating in the area. Describing the nature and dynamics of these ecosystems is a primary goal of the PFE science plan. Despite considerable effort directed at some commercial species, we still lack sufficient details of the spatial dynamics of certain target and non-target species in the region to effectively populate ecosystem models. There remain significant opportunities to establish co-investment projects in this work, however, the success of such proposals would be greatly enhanced by demonstrating what is possible and using this opportunity to refine our techniques in tagging, data analysis and storage. This project will provide initial data on the movement patterns, residency and habitat preferences of key pelagic predators in the Coral and Tasman Seas. It will use smart tag technology procured under the successful MIE bid to PFE and work collaboratively with the co-investment (CMR-FRDC) project  Determining the ecological effects of long-line fishing (hn79a) and provide major input (data) to the proposed Smart tagging and data handling appropriation project (Bradford).

    1708 [view] Keith Sainsbury North West Shelf - Joint Environmental Management Study - 02-03 2002 to 2004 NWSJEMS was a A$7.7m marine environmental study of the North West Shelf, jointly funded by CSIRO and the Western Australian Government. The overarching objective was to develop and demonstrate practical science-based methods that could support integrated regional planning and multiple-use management of the North West Shelf marine ecosystems. The first major component of the study was compiling, extending and integrating information and understanding of the ecosystems and human activities of the North West Shelf. This included reviews of existing information, collation of existing data, filling key gaps through collection of new data, and development of new data products such as maps and habitat classifications. The second component was the development of a range of ecological models that combined data products with process understanding to generate new insights into the dynamics of the North West Shelf system and provide a predictive capability. The models included ocean currents and connectivity, sediment transport, nutrient cycling and primary production, food web interactions, and habitat dynamics. The third component was the development of a new modelling framework for evaluating the effectiveness of strategies for managing major sectors operating on the North West Shelf. This required representation of the ecosystem, the human sectors, and a simulated monitoring and management decision process. The framework was used to evaluate management strategies under various scenarios, taking into account known uncertainties, so as to identify strategies that could robustly meet management objectives. The fourth component was integral to the success of the study. It was the development of tools that allowed both study participants and a broader user group to access, explore and retrieve study results, including data products and model outputs. Where feasible, these were developed as online interactive tools or distributed on DVD. NWS - JEMS - 02-03

    171 [view] Keith Sainsbury North West Shelf Demersal Marine Resources Study (1982-1992) 1982 to 1992 The North West Shelf study was set up to examine the population dynamics and biology of demersal marine resources of the North West Shelf of Australia, in relation to their physical, chemical and biological environment. The first phase of the study comprised 10 cruises by the vessel Soela between 1982 and 1984 to investigate aspects of the ecosystem, followed by an experimental management phase from 1985 to 1992 during which parts of the fishery were closed and the resulting changes monitored. Data gathered during the study included the distribution, reproduction, diet, growth and mortality of the shelf ecosystem biota as well as information about the water column, sediments, and bottom environment. Over 1000 different fish species were recorded during the course of the study. Return cruises to the North West Shelf were made annually from 1986 to 1991 and also in 1995 and 1997.

    2126 [view] Peter Nichols Novel Fatty Acid Lipase Genes Food Futures Flagship Stream 1B3 2004 to 2005 The regiospecific location of fatty acids on dietary lipid molecules (e.g. on the TAG or phospholipid) is known to affect their uptake into animals. Optimising the positional location of LC-É3-PUFA (e.g. SDA, EPA & DHA) on dietary lipids molecules is therefore important for maximising their human nutritional value. Particular positional locations of É3-PUFA acids will also impact the functionality of the oils during food processing. It is also important for ensuring maximal transfer of these fatty acids into animal products when É3 oil sources are incorporated in livestock feeds. This project aims to use novel insect lipases to obtain optimal distribution of É3 fatty acids on TAG and phospholipids to ensure the maximum nutritional value of É3 fatty acids delivered through transgenic plants, livestock, including aquaculture, feeding regimes, or by processing through interesterification.

    2498 [view] Alain Protat ORCA: Using the Investigator radar as a moving reference for the Australian operational radar network 2019 The aim of the Optimizing Radar Calibration and Attenuation corrections (ORCA) project is to use the Investigator C-band Doppler dual-polarization weather radar (SEAPOL) and OceanRAIN ODM470 disdrometer as moving references to: (A) Evaluate (and if needed improve) the calibration of selected coastal radars from the BOM operational weather radar network and investigate some aspects of these calibration techniques further. (B) Characterise the regional variability of the so-called self-consistency dual-polarization calibration relationship using disdrometer observations for use in future operational calibration techniques. Our second main aim is to develop C-band attenuation corrections for SEAPOL using unattenuated collocated S-band ground-based radar measurements from the operational radar network collected during the transit voyages.
    2630 [view] Karen Wild-Allen Observation of plankton bioluminescence 2023 The primary objectives for this Trials Voyage application are to i) install a Glowtracka bioluminescence sensor in the underway laboratory, ii) to test various system configurations to establish its capability, and iii) to quantify bioluminescence natural variability and patchiness along the route of the voyage. These observations will be used to validate model predictions of bioluminescence potential for the CSIRO DFAT project ROAM-Biovis. Depending on the outcome of the trial, the sensor system could be transitioned to routine operation on all future voyages.

Optimising the positional location of LC-É3-PUFA (e.g. SDA, EPA & DHA) on dietary lipids molecules is therefore important for maximising their human nutritional value. Particular positional locations of É3-PUFA acids will also impact the functionality of the oils during food processing. It is also important for ensuring maximal transfer of these fatty acids into animal products when É3 oil sources are incorporated in livestock feeds. This project aims to define the optimal distribution of É3 fatty acids on TAG and phospholipids to ensure the maximum nutritional value of É3 fatty acids delivered through transgenic plants, livestock, including aquaculture, feeding regimes, or by processing through interesterification.

    2513 [view] Ruhi Humphries Polar Cell Aerosol Nucleation (PCAN) 2017 Atmospheric aerosol populations in the Antarctic and Southern Ocean regions are key components of the global radiative balance and represent one of the few places on earth relatively untouched by anthropogenic influence. Recent investigations have shown that the region of the Polar Cell just north of the Antarctic continent is atmospherically distinct from those either north in the Southern Ocean, or on the continent itself. This region has only been measured a handful of times previously, and remains largely uncharacterised, yet the small number of observations showed unexpected properties uncharacteristic of the region. The objectives of this study are therefore to: • Increase the number and quality of atmospheric observations in a region that remains largely uncharacterised. • Characterise the chemical and physical properties of atmospheric aerosol populations in the northern region of the Antarctic Atmospheric Polar Cell • Understand the seasonal changes of the Polar Cell aerosol populations by comparing to springtime measurements at the same location taken in 2012 (AAD project #4032) • Observe the aerosol formation processes in the pristine atmosphere of the Antarctic polar cell. • Better understand the aerosol cloud interactions in the southern part of the Southern Ocean, which exhibits the largest biases in radiation. • Coordinate with measurements made as part of the Swiss-funded Antarctic Circumpolar Expedition (ACE) and NASA’s ATom mission to better understand the aerosol properties of the Southern Ocean in its entirety.

The Study began in October 1992 and finished in June 1996. The Port Phillip Bay Environmental Study was managed by CSIRO and supervised by a Management Committee chaired by the (then) Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. Also represented on the committee were the EPA, Melbourne Water, Melbourne Parks and Waterways and the former Port of Melbourne Authority. The Study was totally funded by Melbourne Water and Melbourne Parks and Waterways. In all, some 47 research tasks were conducted, ranging from scientific literature reviews to fullscale field surveys. All were contracted out. Of the 30 contractors, six were Victorian State agencies, three Commonwealth agencies, nine universities and 12 consultants. Nineteen contractors were Victorian based, seven from interstate and four from overseas. The research programs covered the fields of physical oceanography, toxicants, algal nutrients, marine ecology and ecological modelling. (Taken from "PORT PHILLIP BAY ENVIRONMENTAL STUDY FINAL REPORT" : Harris, G., G. Batley, D. Fox, D. Hall, P. Jernakoff, R. Molloy, A. Murray, B. Newell, J. Parslow, G. Skyring and S. Walker. (1996).

    2435 [view] Mat Vanderklift Primary producer response to dredging related pressures 2013 to 2016 This project meets the needs of the State Government and industry to improve their understanding of how key primary producers are affected by dredging-related pressures. There is almost no knowledge of how primary producers in the NW of Australia will respond to the environmental changes produced by dredging. Consequently, it is difficult to predict and then manage the impacts of dredging on these critical habitats with an acceptable level of certainty. This project will improve our understanding of how seagrasses are affected by dredging activities, and will apply that understanding to better prediction of impacts and management of dredging. A combination of laboratory and field experiments and field surveys will determine the levels of dredging-related pressures (or ‘thresholds’) that produce the earliest observable effects, sub-lethal effects and lethal effects on two species of seagrasses considered most ecologically important in the NW. The research will also determine the capacity of those seagrasses to recover from dredging-related stress. The research will focus on two of the most significant stresses produced by dredging: the reduction in light availability to plants; and the smothering of seagrass and algae as suspended sediments settle. The responses of seagrasses to dredging-related pressures will be characterised in order to identify plant or meadow features that can indicate the duration and the intensity of dredging-related stress that seagrasses have suffered. These indicators can be applied in monitoring programmes to identify stress and trigger management responses. The research will enhance the capacity of government and industry to predict the impacts on dredging on key benthic primary producer ecosystems and, in so doing, improve the certainty and timeliness of key approvals and regulatory processes. It will also improve the capacity to manage the impacts of dredging through improved design of monitoring and management frameworks. WAMSI Dredging Science Node Theme 5

    2589 [view] Zanna Chase Quantification of dust deposition to the ocean using thorium isotopes in seawater and aerosol sampling. 2021 Quantification of dust deposition to the ocean using thorium isotopes in seawater and aerosol sampling. This piggyback project is part of an ARC Discovery Project (CIs Zanna Chase, Andrew Bowie and Peter Strutton, UTAS) entitled ‘Dust to the ocean: does it really increase productivity?” The purpose of the larger project and of this piggyback is to quantify dust deposition to the ocean and its chemical and ecological impact by using new geochemical techniques. The SOTS site is unique in the Southern Hemisphere because we can compare a number of different methods to estimate dust deposition and can also look at interannual variability in dust deposition. In terms of national benefit, mineral dust is an important, yet difficult to quantify source of nutrients to the ocean. This project will deliver more accurate estimates of dust deposition to the ocean around Australia, a region where dust models perform poorly. The expected benefit of the project includes better dust models used to predict future changes in dust deposition to the ocean. Accurate dust predictions are critical for predicting future ocean fish production and carbon uptake. Priority 1 is to collect filtered seawater samples (10L) from a depth profile at the SOTS site. Ideally the full water column depth, but if time is limited the upper 1,500m. These samples will be analysed for 230Th and 232Th concentrations at UTAS. We would also retain sample aliquots for possible future analysis of rare earth elements and Nd isotope composition, pending further funding. For this we would need the CTD-rosette (36 bottle ideally), a laminar flow bench and milli-Q water, all MNF-supplied. We would supply jerry-cans for sampling, storage boxes for the jerry-cans, cartridge filters, and HCl for acidification. Priority 2 is to collect rainwater and aerosol samples using the ship’s aerosol sampling apparatus. These samples would be analysed for labile and total bioactive trace metals, as well as 232Th, at UTAS. For this we would need the MNF aerosol sampling lab. We would supply filters and storage containers for filters. Priority 3 is to collect seawater particulates using in-situ pumps. These samples would be analysed for 230Th and 232Th concentrations at UTAS as well as particulate organic carbon, inorganic carbon and opal. For this we would need the MNF and UTAS ISPs. We would supply filters, batteries and storage containers for filters. The three sample types provide three independent measures of dust flux.

The selection of environmental factors is to be guided by analysing the collection of Observer Reports, from Australian observers placed aboard Japanese fishing vessels, to determine the environmental indicators and their importance in targeting operations and catch rates. Variations of catch rates and size of SBT with time are to be assessed in relation to indices such as the Southern Oscillation Index (SOI) for regional changes in water masses, and in relation to local variations in the patterns of water mass distribution.

    2479 [view] Emily Jateff RAN Hydrographic and Maritime Heritage Surveys 2019 Scientific objectives: 1) Conduct a modern survey in the primary shipping route through Bass Strait for the Australian Hydrographic Office (AHO). This survey will facilitate safe navigation for international and coastal shipping and improve confidence for subsurface navigation in Bass Strait. 2) Undertake mapping of historic shipwreck sites, in partnership with Heritage Victoria and the Australian National Maritime Museum (ANMM). The primary activity of the GSM investigation of historic shipwreck sites is to conduct surveys of the purported site of SS Federal, to provide positive identification of the site and ensure its protection in future. This will be supplemented by opportunistic deployments of the drop camera (supported by SIT) in the event that the shipwreck is located. The location of shipwreck SS Federal was reported to Heritage Victoria by sport divers in 2012. Unfortunately, the provided coordinates were insufficient to narrow down the location. Subsequent attempts to communicate with the finders have been unsuccessful. Accurate location of SS Federal is a priority for Heritage Victoria in order to ensure adequate preservation and protection of this historic site into the future, in accordance with relevant heritage shipwreck protective legislation. Activities may also include opportunistic survey of three ‘unidentified targets’ located between the AHO mapping area and the search area for SS Federal. Aims are to positively identify these sites as cultural heritage targets (shipwrecks) via GSM and drop camera investigation, if time allows. 3) Training of Marine National Facility Operations and Support Team personnel in several routine and new underway and deployed systems, including: - Multibeam patch test calibrations and backscatter calibration lines. - Commissioning and trialling of new Brenke sled, Seaspy magnetometer (ahead of IN2019_V04) and RapidCAST SVP. - Triaxus, CTD casts, multicorer, Smith Mac grab. 4) Seabird and marine mammal observations (Dr Eric Woehler, University of Tasmania): This project will collect data to quantify the variability in the distribution and abundance of seabirds in the marine environment around Australia. The project will examine the relationships between physical oceanographic features and their use as seabird feeding areas. The study also seeks to identify species assemblages, or associations, in the species of seabirds observed that are persistent over time. The project will collect new data for seabirds around Australia, for which there are very few (and in many cases, nil) data. The project will use standard survey methods to ensure compatibility with existing data sets for the same species in other areas. Observations of marine mammals will also be shared with researchers to facilitate greater understanding of the role of oceanographic processes in the spatial and temporal distribution of marine mammals at sea around Australia. The project will also provide a context to current research efforts tracking seabirds and marine mammals, which are often constrained to a relatively low number of instrumented individuals relative to the population as a whole.

SOTS uses a set of three automated moorings to measure these processes under extreme conditions, where they are most intense and have been least studied. The atmosphere-ocean exchanges occur on many timescales, from daily insolation cycles to ocean basin decadal oscillations and thus high frequency observations sustained over many years are required. The current context of anthropogenic forcing of rapid climate change adds urgency to the work. SOTS

We will also sample a few shallower stations at 300 m (to trial the Brenke sled) and at 1000m (to ensure a supply of live animals). The depth and sites listed below are indicative only, and may change slightly based on topography and weather. To meet these objectives we will deploy a variety of gear to sample different components of biodiversity. The gear will also vary depending on the nature of the substratum (soft sediments or rock). We will lodge media stories directly from the vessel, in conjunction with media teams at Museum Victoria, the NESP biodiversity Hub, and the MNF. We will have a live stream to schools from the vessel on World Oceans Day (June 8th), with a potential audience of 5,000 students across Australia (years 5-8), supplemented by video clips obtained aboard the vessel.

Modelling calculations of sediment mass fluxes will permit the first-ever hazard mapping scheme for submarine volcanoes globally (tsunami and sediment flows) and provide new ore vectoring strategies for exploration in Australia. This expedition will collect new information on volcanoes responsible for the largest types of volcanic eruptions, focusing on those located along the submarine Kermadec volcanic arc, northeast of New Zealand, as shown in Error! Reference source not found. . The voyage will target three massive caldera volcanoes (Macauley, Havre and Healy), aiming to acquire their internal structure to infer eruption style and depositional processes.

The ability of the current database architecture and staff to cope with the expected high data loads will be tested this year with the release of ~50 PAT tags and numerous SAT/SPOT tags, in addition to our commitments with existing conventional and archival tags within our research projects. The current proposal will examine the processes in place with an aim to improving our storage, archiving, analysis and display of tag related data. In particular, we aim to: 1. improve the level of automation in the collection and entry of data; 2. develop additional systems to reduce the amount of time required by staff to populate tag databases; 3. examine means to streamline reward allocation and summary statistics from the databases; 4. develop a mechanism to facilitate visualization of data on various scales for internal use, clients/stakeholders, and the general public. This proposal is for appropriation support only. There are no direct external client contributions; however, this proposal relies heavily on the cooperation of many scientists within the Sustainable Pelagic Fisheries and Ecosystems research group for input.

    2556 [view] Allison Bell Sounding Depth 2020 Purpose: To conduct research and recordings for the development of a voice-led music composition based on sounds of the ocean, and to collect, catalogue, and analyse the sounds of human and marine correspondence. Description of proposed work: This will involve making field recordings, both above- and below-deck; all the mechanical and human noise, the sounds of on-board living, and of scientific research being conducted, especially acoustics; but more so, the natural sounds of both the air and ocean surface, as well as – where possible – the underwater worlds: the wind, weather, and waves, the seabirds and marine life, the ocean floor, and beyond. Allison will catalogue recordings of all possible experienced sound, and then develop her own vocal interpretation of each of these sounds; a human voice’s subjective response to, and replication of, all these varied sounds. Some of these vocal responses will also be recorded on-board, together with a detailed written log of the whole process, gathering additional impressions and context. Whilst on-board Allison will maintain basic email correspondence with composer Prof Cat Hope, Head of Music at Monash University, about this sound world, and her vocal responses to it. This can, in turn, mean all sound Allison experiences then becomes something subjective again, within Cat’s imagination, through a correspondence akin to old fashioned “letter-writing”. Post-voyage, Allison will work with Cat to develop a voice-led music composition, based upon these acoustic experiences. Cat has a background in writing experimental compositions for low-frequency sounds, and both Allison and Cat have a particular interest in how sound travels faster through water than air, and the possibilities this holds for composition and performance. The resultant piece will be performed at The Old Mercury Building, Hobart, supported by Detached Cultural Organisation. This unique, post-industrial, art space contains four storeys analogous to the multi-levels of sound Allison will experience whilst on the voyage – from the ocean and air above-deck, to the human and mechanical below, and the ocean depths that surround. Different levels of the building will be used to perform simultaneous scores which respond to the multiple layers of sound experienced during the voyage.

    2186 [view] Alistair Hobday Southern Bluefin Tuna Recruitment Monitoring Program 2004-05 2004 to 2005 There are three proposed research activities for 2004-05 RMP: 1. Aerial survey indices of juvenile abundance in the GAB: re-establishing a full scientific aerial line-transect survey and continuing the SAPUE commercial spotting data collection. 2. Acoustic monitoring in WA: determine if SBT are migrating outside the Japanese acoustic survey region and continued studies of fish behaviour, habitat preferences, with tagging of age-1 SBT 3. Integrated analyis project. Synthesis of the acoustic, archival, and survey data into an integrated model of juvenile SBT behavior. CSIRO is seeking support for the first component (an aerial survey and commercial spotting data collection) from the SBTMAC RSC and DAFF. Much effort over the last 10 years has been directed at development of a relative index of juvenile SBT abundance based on a scientific aerial survey using dedicated tuna spotters and aircraft. Validation of survey assumptions has also been a major research focus, including archival tagging and acoustic tracking projects. In the year 2000 it seemed that the ability to detect changes in juvenile SBT abundance using the scientific aerial survey index was limited. A recommendation from an aerial survey workshop, held to address some of the concerns, was to suspend the survey for a year (2001) and complete analysis and synthesis of existing data. A decision to continue or end the scientific aerial survey could then be made on the merits of the data, in particular the ability to detect changes in abundance. A significant amount of effort has been directed at improving the index by incorporating information from the supporting projects, such as archival tag-derived surfacing behaviours with regard to environmental conditions. The analysis of the 1993-2000 aerial survey data has now been completed and concluded that the scientific aerial survey does provide a suitable indicator of SBT abundance in the GAB. It has also been recognized that the level of uncertainty is simil SBT Recruitment Monitoring 2004-05

    2476 [view] Alan Williams Status and recovery of deep-sea coral communities on seamounts in iconic Australian marine reserves 2018 Our proposed work on Australian and New Zealand seamounts addresses international biodiversity management research priorities (e.g. CBD 2015-053) by providing data on recovery trajectories of deep-sea coral communities following direct human (trawling) impacts. The distributional extent, habitat associations, composition, biodiversity, and biological traits of deepsea coral communities off Tasmania, both inside and outside the Huon and Tasman Fracture reserves, will be determined and mapped for the first time. This information will contribute to a status report on coral communities and provide context for the recovery study. The status report and an understanding of changes in coral communities through time will inform future planning by the Australian and other management agencies to monitor and manage deep-sea coral reefs as conservation assets. Our results also have international relevance to understanding and managing fishing impact on comparable deepsea coral communities, including in High Sea areas beyond national jurisdictions. New data will be combined with previous surveys of the seamounts in the Huon and Tasman Fracture CMRs in 1997 and 2007, the St. Helens Seamount in 2008, and parallel New Zealand studies in 2001, 2006, 2009 and 2015, to address three broad objectives: 1. Determine the extent, ecological characteristics, and conservation status of deep-sea coral reefs on Tasmanian seamounts inside and outside of existing reserves. 2. Measure recovery trajectories and dynamics of deep-sea coral communities (multi-species and successional changes) following cessation of bottom trawling. 3. Provide the first set of empirical data on conservation status, resilience and recovery potential to enhance management and conservation of deep-sea coral habitats nationally.

    2395 [view] Ken Ridgway, Bernadette Sloyan Sustained Monitoring of the East Australian Current 2012 The East Australian Current (EAC) is a complex and highly energetic western boundary system in the south-western Pacific off eastern Australia. It provides both the western boundary of the South Pacific gyre and the linking element between the Pacific and Indian Ocean gyres. This voyage will deploy an array of full-depth current meter and property (CTD) moorings from the continental slope to the abyssal waters off Brisbane (26oS). At this location the EAC, north of the high eddy variability, the approaching its maximum strength and its flow is relatively uniform and coherent. The aim of this observing system is to capture the mean and time-varying flow of the EAC. This a component of IMOS, and will provide an intensive reference set of measurements of the EAC flow over sustained period for monitoring EAC transport, improved understanding of relationship of EAC and the South Pacific gyre and impact of the coastal marine ecosystem, and validation and interpretation of the current system in numerous climate and ocean models. The mooring array is located on the existing long-term XBT transects, satellite altimetry and glider tracks. The EAC deep mooring array will be complemented by a Queensland- IMOS operated inshore mooring array on the continental shelf region
    2453 [view] Bernadette Sloyan, Remo Cossu Sustained monitoring of the EAC: mass, heat and freshwater transports. The East Australian Current (EAC) is a complex and highly energetic western boundary system in the south-western Pacific off eastern Australia. It closes the South Pacific subtropical gyre, transporting heat, salt and other nutrients southward and onto the continental shelf. Off Brisbane (27o S) the EAC, is north of the high eddy variability region, approaches its maximum strength and is relatively uniform and coherent. The mooring array is located near the existing long-term XBT transect and satellite altimetry ground tracks. The aim of this observing system is to capture the mean and timevarying flow of the EAC. This EAC mooring array is a component of IMOS. These observation will provide an intensive reference set of measurements of the EAC over a sustained period for improved understanding of the relationship of EAC with the basin-scale South Pacific gyre, its impact of the coastal marine ecosystem, and validation and interpretation of the current system in numerous climate and ocean models.

    2452 [view] Zoran Ristovski, Karen Wild-Allen The Great Barrier Reef as a significant source of climatically relevant aerosol particles 2016 Understanding the role of clouds in the warming and cooling of the planet, and how that role changes in a warming world is one of the biggest uncertainties climate change researchers face. A key feature in this regard is the influence on cloud properties of cloud condensation nuclei (CCN), the very small atmospheric aerosol particles necessary for the nucleation of every single cloud droplet. The anthropogenic contribution to CCN is known to be large in some regions; however, the natural processes that regulate CCN over large parts of the globe are less well understood, and particularly in the Great Barrier Reef. The production of new aerosol particles from biogenic sources (forests, marine biota, etc.) is a frequent phenomenon capable of affecting aerosol concentrations, and therefore CCN, on both regional and global scales. The biogenic aerosol particles therefore have a major influence on cloud properties and hence climate and the hydrological cycle. Determining the magnitude and drivers of biogenic aerosol production in different ecosystems is therefore crucial for the future development of climate models. The fundamental questions that this study will address are: 1. What is the significance of this ecosystem as a natural source of aerosol particles? 2. How strong is this source at the regional level? 3. What is the mechanism of particle production over the GBR?

    2477 [view] Michael Double, Eleanor Bell, Stephen Nicol The availability of Antarctic krill to large predators and their role in biogeochemical recycling in the Southern Ocean. Alternate title: ENRICH (Euphausiids and Nutrient Recycling in Cetacean Hotspots) 2019 Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba) is the primary prey for many squid, fish, bird, and mammal species but the factors that influence the distribution, density, form and behaviour of krill are not well understood. Equally it is not known how the characteristics of krill swarms affect the availability of krill to foraging predators. To determine whether krill swarm characteristics influence predator distribution and behaviour this project will use the latest active acoustic multibeam technology to describe the density, distribution, and fine-scale 3D structure of krill swarms both within the vicinity of Antarctic blue whales and in control locations that are demonstrably distant from these specialist and extreme krill predators. Antarctic blue whales facilitate this study because their locations can be tracked in real-time from many hundreds of kilometres using passive acoustic technology explicitly developed to detect these whales’ loud, low frequency calls. Within whale aggregations the movement and foraging behaviour of blue whales will be described using tracking technologies. In addition, this project will facilitate the first field-based investigation of the controversial theory of ironfertilisation by whales. Through measurements of the abundance and speciation of whale faecal iron we will establish whether iron concentrations are higher within aggregations of feeding whales than within krill-only aggregations or than in adjacent areas. We will also determine whether whale faeces stimulates local production, alters phytoplankton community structure and growth, and its influence on nutrient cycling, nitrogen-fixation and biogenic climate gas production and the timescale of any effect. This project could not only profoundly influence our view of the role of whales in the Antarctic ecosystem but will describe the potential dependencies of predators on krill in a form that may be limited in space and time. This information will inform the development of management systems for expanding Antarctic krill fisheries.

The purpose of the moratorium was to allow time for CSIRO to conduct scientific investigations and provide Government with sufficient information to assess future management options. The primary objectives of the research were to assess 1) the uniqueness of the benthic seamount fauna in the region, 2) the potential impacts of the deepwater trawl fishery upon it, and 3) the measures required to conserve it.

The source data consists primarily of longline effort data (year, monthly catch quantity, latitude, longitude) in csv or text format. Computer modelling written in R includes population modelling, assessing the impact of fishery by-catch on seabird ecology, overlap of fishery and seabird distribution. The models take the fishery effort data, population parameters from a specific seabird population and estimate the annual bycatch and subsequent population trajectory. Outputs are plots of numbers of breeding pairs, number fledged, juvenile survival, adults survival, bycatch by life-stage and by fishery. These data once published in journals are made public.

While the locations have recently been discovered and an ROV got some images, neither of these wrecks have any swath bathymetry coverage. A slow transit over the sites (maximum 8 knots) would enable collection of this valuable, albeit low resolution data. The collection of the data is to aid in any future development of a management plan for the specific and greater areas. We also wish to hold a memorial service for those lost on these vessels. There is strong support from the Navy and community to hold a memorial service for those lost at sea, with wreaths to be provided for the ceremony.

It will develop ecosystem approaches to understand ecosystem functioning and the productivity of the Northern Prawn Fishery. The approach will also be used to contribute to the develop of a whole-ecosystem management and conservation approach for the NPF. The knowledge will be of direct benefit to managers of the fishery (Australian Fish Management Authority), the National Ocean Office and the Department of Environment and Heritage. The information will also have implications for managers of other input controlled fisheries in Australia. P - Trawling, Benthic Biodiversity & Ecosystem Indicators

    2500 [view] Matthew Hawker Trichodesmium sampling 2019 Trichodesmium is an important but poorly understood part of the marine environment. It is thought to be responsible for a significant majority of nitrogen fixation in the ocean; understanding its habitat and range is therefore an important part of understanding ocean primary productivity. Around Australia, Trichodesmium is most commonly seen along the northern Queensland coast. However, knowledge of Trichodesmium is relatively scarce as it is impossible to culture in laboratory studies and difficult to accurately observe in-situ. Basic questions such as the spatial patterns and seasonal cycles of Trichodesmium remain poorly understood. This project will contribute to the observational record of Trichodesmium by collecting and analysing seawater samples at locations adjacent to the Great Barrier Reef. Surface samples will be collected at existing planned CTD cast locations, so there will be no impact on the voyage track or scheduling. These observations will assist researchers to answer those questions outlined above. They will also aid in the verification of Trichodesmium remote sensing algorithms, as well as biogeochemical ocean forecast systems such as the eReefs.
    2523 [view] Stephanie Downes Tritium/Helium Measurements 2016 The scientific objective of this work is to obtain Tritium/Helium measurements in the Antarctic Circumpolar Current. Helium is an inert gas naturally released at hydrothermal vents, and (as a passive tracer) is commonly used to trace deep ocean circulation. Recently, hydrothermal vents and plumes have been identified along the Australian-Antarctic Ridge and Pacific-Antarctic Ridge using observations of temperature, helium and other tracers. Only one voyage to date has been undertaken with ocean surface to floor data south of the Pacific Antarctic Ridge along 170oW (67oS to the Equator; 1996). However, helium data was not collected during this voyage. The new helium dataset acquired on this voyage, will be used to fulfil the following main objectives are: •Provide new evidence of hydrothermal activity along the western end of the Pacific Ridge, including a possible description of plume dispersion along the ocean’s strongest current, Antarctic Circumpolar Current. •Assess interconnectivity of hydrothermal systems between the Australian-Antarctic Ridge and Pacific Antarctic Ridge. •Provide new descriptions of water mass pathways and exchange within and between the Antarctic Circumpolar Current and the Ross Gyre.

    2195 [view] Russ Babcock Trophodynamic Modelling: An applied tool for ecosystem based fisheries management on the Central WA Coast 2005 to 2009 The project will build on the improved understanding of underlying ecosystem function in coastal habitats of the Central West Coast Region of Western Australia, provided through SRFME-funded field-based collaborative projects. These studies will provide information on the use of critical habitats, and habitat linkages through animal movements (ontogenetic habitat shifts, migration) and passive transport of organic matter. Diet, food sources, habitat dependencies of key trophic groups and key species will also be quantified. The modeling component of this work, which is the subject of this application, will provide a tool for integrating all these strands of information. There are three central objectives within the modeling project: 1. Develop ecosystem models that will enable us to make predictions of how the coastal ecosystem, including important species such as rock lobster and coastal finfish, may respond to variation in fishing 2. Develop ecosystem models that will enable us to make predictions of how the coastal ecosystem, including important species such as rock lobster and coastal finfish, may respond to variation in environmental factors (such as Leeuwin Current variations, changes in prevailing weather patterns that may be affected by climate changes). 3. Use the ecosystem model to compare and evaluate the relative merits of a range of potential Ecosystem Based Management Strategies, including both traditional fisheries management measures and spatial management measures including MPAs. Models will be calibrated and tested against observations of ecological trends in the various management zones of the Jurien Bay Marine Park. P - Trophodynamic Modelling

The results were compared with satellite imagery of sea surface temperature acquired over a longer and more detailed period to interpolate the in situ data and to study interannual variability. Additional sampling was undertaken using moored and free-loating sediment traps to study vertical fluxes in the water column. South-East Trawl Trophodynamics Study

Using advance marine sonar we will examine how different habitats are distributed across a variety of geomorphic structures within the Coral Sea Marine Park. The seafloor habitats in this marine park are poorly understood and given the recent release of the Australian Marine Park (AMP) rezoning it is particularly important to understand the variability of these habitats. We can use this data to compare to seamount habitats in temperate locations such as the Huon AMP.

The work therefore adds value to the previously-awarded MNF ship timeby surveying the biogeochemistry in a meander similar to where the IN2016_V02 eddy would have formed,as well as adding a biogeochemistry dimension to IN2018_V05.The results will deepen our understanding of nutrient delivery and consumption in the Southern Ocean, with benefits for future climate models.The aims of this supplementary work are to: 1.Characterise the nutrient field in the context of the physical structure of the meander(the nutrient measurements are included in the original voyage proposal). 2.Calculate rates of nutrient delivery to the surface.3.Contrast the relative importance of upwelling and mixing with previous nearby measurements.

    2544 [view] Jan Strugnell Using samples from the Kerguelen Plateau to date past West Antarctic ice sheet collapse 2020 This project aims to determine the timing of the most recent collapse of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet by examining the genomic signatures of benthic marine species with circumpolar distributions. Specifically, we aim to: a. Develop panels of genomic markers for investigating genetic variation within target species b. Establish demographic models of genetic connectivity through trans-west Antarctic seaways that may have existed during the warmer than present Last Interglacial (LIG), 125ka, based on the most probable Antarctic ice sheet reconstructions from models and geological data c. Distinguish between these demographic models by testing their fit to genomic data This proposal will enable discovery of when marine animals last migrated through historic seaways crossing the Antarctic continent, thereby indicating the most recent date of West Antarctic Ice Sheet collapse. This proposal will take full advantage of rock dredging during voyage IN2020_V01, and will require no deviations off route or additional time. Benthic animals have been retrieved this way for previous rock sampling on IN2016_V01 to the Kerguelen Plateau (Coffin et al). Therefore we anticipate that benthic samples will be obtained using the sampling protocols of IN2020_V01, including dredges and possibly Smith-Mac grabs. Kerguelen samples to date ice sheet collapse

The land and coasts are linked by the rivers that flow between them and this is particularly true in the Kimberley where each year large amounts of freshwater enter the coasts. This water carries with it remnants of plants and soil and these can settle close to shore or be carried out to sea. This project aims to understand how dissolved and particulate material is transported by the tides and currents and whether these exports potentially play a role in coastal productivity. This information will be useful for the Dambimangari Saltwater Country Plan as it will provide information to help make informed management decisions.

At present, there is a high level of uncertainty about how the Kimberley system works and what future stressors it may encounter. The future of the Kimberley system will be determined by the interaction between many forces: the economy, ecological processes, social development, climate change, human population dynamics, resource extraction and many others. These processes influence one another, leading to highly complex systems. The project has two objectives: (1) The first objective is to develop two computer models (using ALCES and Ecopath with Ecosim EwE) to improve our understanding of the likely impacts of increasing human pressure and climate change at a regional scale and to integrate the knowledge and information generated by other projects, the model projected output to the year 2050. (2) The second objective is to employ the Management Strategy Evaluation framework to engage stakeholders and to communicate the modelling results to key decision makers. What futures we explore will be determined in consultation with stakeholders and interested parties. The success of this project depends crucially on addressing the main issues, questions and concerns about the future of the Kimberley region. The result of this study will support key state and local decision-makers. WAMSI Project 2.2.8

The objective of the project is to develop, demonstrate and support scientific tools for the ecosystem-based development of marine and aquatic industries in NSW. Detailed activities and deliverables will be developed and agreed by the CSIRO and the NSW DPI prior to their commencement. Issues likely to be addressed include impacts of climate variability on fisheries and other industries at shelf scale, and links between catchments, estuaries, and shelf waters. A base-level of funding from CMR, WfO and NSW has been agreed (see attached letter) to support preliminary model development, data collation, and further scoping. However, it is expected that external resourcing will increase substantially in subsequent years to support a broader range of activities.
    2155 [view] Keith Sainsbury WFO - National Framework for MSE 2004 to 2006 This project is motivated by three interlinked issues. (1) The importance of CMR consolidating and demonstrating in the scientific literature its capacity for scientific support for integrated multiple use management. Such scientific papers are ultimately the benchmark by which scientific quality is judged, for the organisation and its individuals, and which attracts quality co-investment in research projects. (2) The importance of maintaining strong and positive links with WA regulators of the marine environment and industries. These WA regulators are very keen to make ongoing use of the understanding and products developed through NWSJEMS, both on the NWS and elsewhere, but currently there is no sufficiently capable WA agency to transfer this knowledge to. Ultimately SRFME (probably through SRFME II) should meet this need, but in the short to medium term the scientific capability and existing priorities of SRFME will greatly limit what can be done. There is a risk that WA will be unable to use the NWSJEMS understanding and products on the NWS and Ningaloo Reef, which will undermine CMR credibility in WA. Through this proposed project CMR will maintain a mechanism from which to build and deliver externally funded or co-investment application projects in WA. This should also help in the negotiation of SRFME II. (3) The desirability of exploring opportunities for CMR to apply the NWSJEMS understanding and products in area beyond WA. Many governments and regulators, within Australia and beyond, are actively seeking scientific support for integrated management of the human uses of marine ecosystems. Some of these developments are in existing WFO projects and others are under development. So this project is essentially a bridging project  to allow CSIRO to consolidate the scientific benefits of the study after completion of NWSJEMS, to allow applications transfer of capability to CMR in WA, and to explore options for applications beyond WA.

    2153 [view] David McDonald WFO - Western Port - Scoping Study 2004 to 2005 There is a common theme in past and current practice of information failure: information about impacts and interactions in both biophysical and socioeconomic systems has either been absent, or has not been available to decision makers and stakeholders in industry and natural resource management. Rapidly improving scientific observation, understanding and predictive capability have improved knowledge of biophysical and socioeconomic systems, but progress in linking science to management has been comparatively slow. However, recent independent advances in renewable resource management, and in economic theory, promise solutions to the information bottleneck between science and management. This study will combine, for the first time, the management strategy evaluation techniques developed for fisheries science, with novel instruments developed to address environmental information gaps in economic decisions. By linking smart technologies and new theories from multiple disciplines, these new tools can provide a coordinated approach to policy development and natural resource management, and support the integrated management of multiple uses in an explicit and transparent manner. The aim of the current project is to develop and demonstrate such tools and methods using Western Port and its Catchment as a case study This scoping work will lay the foundations for a much larger study capable of transforming the management of Western Port from a multitude of sectoral based plans to multiple-use management based on comprehensive management strategy evaluations. This would represent the first attempt at such an approach in a coastal bay with the impacts associated with a high surrounding population.
