Dataset: RV Investigator Voyage IN2016_V04 End of Voyage (EOV) Archive


This record describes the End of Voyage (EOV) archive from the Marine National Facility (MNF) RV Investigator research voyage in2016_v04, titled "Influence of temperature and nutrient supply on the biogeochemical function and diversity of ocean microbes." The voyage took place from Sydney (NSW) to Brisbane (QLD) between August 31 and September 22, 2016.

Main project: Influence of temperature and nutrient supply on the biogeochemical function and diversity of ocean microbes.

Supplementary project: Natural iron fertilisation of oceans around Australia: Linking terrestrial dust and bushfires to marine biogeochemistry.

For further information about these projects please refer to the Voyage Plan and Voyage Summary.
