Duration: 24.33 days

From: Sydney To: Noumea

Region: Tasman Sea and the Kenn Plateau in the Coral Sea.

Ship: Southern Surveyor [details]

Description: To acquire geoscience data from the Kenn Plateau to the abyssal plain.

  • 200-4500 m water depth
  • 20 to 27° South, 154 to 159° East.
  • Highest priorities are seismic profiling (3300 km at 7.5 knots) and dredging (40 dredges, 500-4000 m water depth)
  • Secondary priorities are magnetic profiling (on seismic profiles), swath mapping, echosounder profiling, seabed sampling (10 cores, 500-4000 m water depth) and 10 grabs, 200-1000 m water depth)
  • Swath will be run the whole time, except on final transit to Nouméa
  • Transits at 11 knots to and from work area.

Leader: Dr Neville Exon (Geoscience Australia)
