CSIRO’s International Nutrient Inter-comparison Voyage Launch

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

Bringing researchers and organisations together 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.

Prior to RV Investigator’s departure, voyage partners and members of the marine research community are welcomed to this INIV launch event to hear from participants, keynote speaker Christina Schallenberg of CSIRO and INIV Chief Scientist, CSIRO’s Andreas Marouchos.
