Australia’s national bluewater research vessel, the RV Investigator, has left Hobart for the Southern Ocean to gather data that will help us understand the impacts of ocean-atmosphere interactions on climate processes.
The East Australian Current (EAC) moves massive amounts of water down the east coast of Australia, each second transporting more than 25 million cubic metres, the equivalent of 10,000 Olympic swimming pools, southwards.
Data from an IMOS East Australian Current (AEC) array of moorings provide a significant advance in our understanding of the system and begin to expose its complexity.
Third 'IMOS in MOcean' video – What do changes in the Southern Ocean mean for the Antarctic ice sheet?
The 3rd video in the 'IMOS in MOcean' series examines evidence that a warming Southern Ocean is contributing to Antarctic ice sheet melting.
The 2nd video in the 'IMOS in MOcean' series examines carbon and heat transfer between ocean and atmosphere.
The RV Investigator sets off today to deploy IMOS deepwater moorings to observe the East Australian Current.
Surprising results as RV Investigator’s first scientific voyage builds on IMOS long-term monitoring of the Southern Ocean
Australia’s new National Marine Facility, the RV Investigator, has successfully deployed IMOS equipment to monitor indicators of climate variability and long-term change. Upon their return, scientists report findings that impact...
