RV Investigator: oceanographic research capabilities

Australia’s new Marine National Facility research vessel, Investigator, is so jam packed full of scientific equipment we have produced some fact sheets, so you can read about all of the capabilities.

There are five categories: oceanographic research, geoscience research, biological research, atmospheric research and Investigator.

Animating Investigator’s science capabilities: weather research radar

A weather research radar located on the main mast of Investigator is able to send 800 microwave pulses every second, and collect data within a 150 km radius from the ship and 20 km into the atmosphere.

This animation explains how this equipment is used on board Investigator, Australia’s new Marine National Facility research vessel.

RV Investigator scientific sea trial video!

A few months ago one of RV Investigator’s crew members had the brilliant idea of grabbing his drone before jumping on board for the scientific sea trials.

Then, some of the Marine National Facility support staff got creative with a GoPro and captured on board images and some action shots of equipment being deployed.

The ship looks amazing!

Animating Investigator’s science capabilities: oceanographic research with the CTD

We’ve come up with a fun way to help explain the scientific and engineering capabilities of Australia’s new Marine National Facility research vessel, Investigator, with a series of animations.

One of the key pieces of equipment oceanographers use is called a CTD, which is a device that profiles the conductivity and temperature of the water column at different depths.

This animation explains how this equipment is used on board Investigator, Australia’s new Marine National Facility research vessel.

Check it out!
