SS2011_T02    - is a Marine National Facility voyage

Period: 2011-06-06 20:00 to 2011-06-14 22:00 UTC

Duration: 8.08 days

From: Auckland To: Hobart

Region: Tasman Sea

Ship: Southern Surveyor [details]

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