Deployments

The thermosalinograph, chlorophyll and turbidity sensors operate on AIMS’s two research vessels: R.V. Solander and R.V. Cape Ferguson, which operate continuously in Australian tropical waters. The AIMS Voyage tracker (http://data.aims.gov.au/voyagetracker/) provides up-to-date information on the research vessels, including their present position and historical transects. The thermosalinograph data is shown for each trip and data is available for download.

As of 1 Jan 2018, the AIMS historical database stores underway data from 203 voyages from the R.V. Cape Ferguson (from September 2008) and 135 voyages from the R.V. Solander (from February 2010).
