The RV Investigator arrived in Hobart on Tuesday 9 September at around 10am, the offical CSIRO blog for the ship is the CSIRO FRV Blog with a whole bunch of info. I currently work at CSIRO on the Investigator supporting the data acquisition and other IT systems, so I'll be updating this site with photos and info every now and then.

Here are some photos from arrival day, and from a some of the following days doing inductions and carrying gear onboard.

Parking ... probably not the right word

Just to get an idea of the scale of the ship, here is a photo of the CSIRO office (2 storeys high) from the far side with the ship in the background ... well part of it
