Southern ocean

investigator Feb 24, 2015

The cold water tesing voyage was run early in 2015 to test the cold water and atmospeheric capabilities of the RV Investigator. The trip went really well, we had a mixture of rough seas and beautiful calm ocean. With a mixture of birds and sealife escorting us most of the way. The science testing went really well and we were greeted by an Aurora Australis on 2 of the 3 clear nights we had. The best one was at around 57 degrees south, but we saw it again a few nights later at around 60 deg south.
