Kate to cross the Great Australian Bight

Kate Simmonds has been awarded a competitive position aboard the RV Investigator later this year as part of the first Collaborative Australian Postgraduate Sea Training Alliance Network (CAPSTAN) voyage. Well done Kate! Details below and at the CAPSTAN website.

This training voyage, on the research vessel RV Investigator, will consist of practical hands-on research, sea training, theoretical lectures and an assessment of your ability to communicate scientific findings and ideas. It won’t be all hard work though, as there will be a number of fun activities along the way. The voyage will help to develop your skills and experience in many of the following: water mass identification, seafloor and sediment interpretation, acoustic interpretation, atmospherics, biology, and interpretation of underway data. This is a great opportunity to test your research, inquiry, problem-solving and communication in a unique work environment.
