SS2012_T03    - is a Marine National Facility voyage

Period: 2012-06-07 00:00 to 2012-06-18 00:00 UTC

Duration: 11.00 days

Region: Pacfic, Tasman Sea

Ship: Southern Surveyor [details]

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