CSIRO International Nutrient Inter-comparison Voyage Broadcast – 6, 8, 12, 14, and 16 June

6 June 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Hear from researchers working at-sea on a project to reduce seawater nutrient measurement errors

Hosted by CSIRO, the International Nutrient Inter-comparison Voyage (INIV) will take place in June 2023. INIV brings researchers from across the globe together on-board CSIRO research vessel (RV) Investigator to study inter-comparability of seawater nutrient measurements and different shipboard methodologies, with their aim to reduce error between international laboratories.

Currently, comparability of oceanographic nutrient data sets is poor, with potential error upwards of 10% between international laboratories. This project is investigating the causes of these differences, and studies the techniques and methodologies that agencies use while at sea.

During RV Investigator’s 14-day voyage, voyage partners and members of the marine research community are invited to join 1-hour long live webcasts from the ship, where INIV participants will present a unique aspect of nutrient analysis, data interpretation, and nutrient impacts on ocean research.
