International Indian Ocean Expedition

The RV Investigator departed Fremantle on the 14th May 2019 set for a month-long voyage as part of the second International Indian Ocean Expedition!

The 40 strong multi-national scientific team will study the physical, chemical and biological oceanography of the 110°E meridian - the same region as part of the first International Indian Ocean Expedition. The team will repeat many of the measurements made nearly six decades ago to ascertain if there have been significant changes in the pelagic ecosystem near the western extent of Australia’s Exclusive Economic Zone.
