RV Investigator ‘standing meander’ voyage video October/November 2018
In October 2018 an IMAS-led voyage on the Marine National Facility research vessel Investigator sailed from Hobart with a team of scientists aiming to solve a Southern Ocean puzzle with important ramifications for the global climate.
The researchers surveyed a ‘standing meander’ south of Tasmania that they hope will help them to understand why the east-flowing Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC) has remained constant despite westerly winds strengthening by 20% over the last two decades.
This video produced by the Ocean Media Institute explains the voyage and features scientists talking about their research and the voyage.
