SS2013_T02    - is a Marine National Facility voyage

Period: 2013-06-17 08:00 to 2013-06-28 23:00 UTC

Duration: 11.63 days

From: Hobart To: Fremantle

Region: Great Australian Bight and Bremer Sub-Basin.

Ship: Southern Surveyor [details]

Description: MNF Southern Surveyor research voyage SS2013_t02. The benthic fauna of the Great Australian Bight Scientific Objectives: The focus of this program is to give students a taste of what it is like to live and work on an ocean going research vessel and to expose them to some of the different sampling methods and equipment that are used in oceanographic research. The students will have three quasi scientific aims as follows: 1) to sample and characterise the benthic communities in the Great Australian Bight (GAB); 2) to investigate surface and water column productivity along Australia's southern seaboard; 3) to map Australia's seafloor. The students will be involved in all aspects of the research - sorting and curating the fauna - milking the rosette/changing the filters and measuring the dissolved oxygen and salinity - operating and monitoring the swath. Outside of sampling stations and designated tasks, students will take it in turns to watch for marine mammals and we may supplement the sampling and research with a series of lectures and practicals utilising the material/data collected. For Keith, the voyage provides an ongoing opportunity to use vessel transit time to complete a national mapping of the upper-mid slope seabed with multi-beam mapping and associated ecological interpretation. The upper-slope and mid-slope seabed 100 m to 1500 m depth range, are regions important for regional marine planning, biodiversity and conservation assessments and fisheries habitat mapping. The swath mapping will be integrated as a part of the student activities and there is a 12h portion of the transit dedicated to targeting some canyons off Esperance and filling the swath track adjacent to the 500 m isobath. For Tanner & Williams the voyage provides an opportunity to gain further specimens and add a temporal aspect to their study of the epifaunal assemblages (benthic) of the GAB Marine Park and its surrounds. The GAB is a unique ecosystem, with diversity similar to the Great Barrier Reef, and a much higher proportion of endemic species, but only a fraction of the scientific effort.
