Thank you for your interest and support. 

We had over 21,000 hits From around the world while we were at sea for 7 weeks (Jan. - Mar. 2017) on the RV Investigator.

We are now back on shore and the work on the cores and Plankton we collected is now underway over the next 3 years.

This mission specific website is now no longer being updated, but is available to read and refer to.

WELCOME !!

This site follows the voyage of Australian, Italian, Spanish and American scientists on Australia's research vessel Investigator. Our voyage departs January 14th, for 51 days down through the Southern Ocean to the Sabrina Coast of Antarctica, where the Totten Glacier is found. Our aim is to survey for the first time the continental slope of the region and then to locate places where we can core the seafloor to retrieve records of the oscillation between warm and cold periods of the Earth's past in this very unique ecosystem. We'll have other scientists on board looking at the living phytoplankton communities and also sampling Antarctic aerosols. 
Voyage with us from the comfort of your home, school and work place. Follow our blog and explore our website.
