Dataset: RV Investigator Voyage IN2016_V03 End of Voyage (EOV) Archive


This record describes the End of Voyage (EOV) archive from the Marine National Facility RV Investigator research voyage in2016_v03, titled "Monitoring Ocean Change and Variability along 170 W from the ice edge to the equator." The voyage consisted of two legs: Leg 1 from Hobart (TAS) to Wellington (NZ) between April 27 and May 26, and Leg 2 from Wellington (NZ) to Lautoka (Fiji) from April 27 to June 28, 2016.

Main project: "Monitoring Ocean Change and Variability along 170oW from the ice edge to the equator."

Supplementary project: "Facing the challenges of under-ice for autonomous navigation."

The archive for the IN2016_V03 EOV data is curated by the CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere Data Centre in Hobart, with a permanent archive at the CSIRO Data Access Portal (DAP,, providing access to participants and processors of the data collected in the Marine National Facility RV Investigator IN2016_V03 voyage.

All voyage documentation is available electronically to MNF support via the local network. Access to voyage documentation for non-CSIRO participants can be made via
