Bit different to the Bulkies. 7 and a half weeks sea time to go! 🤘 #rvinvestigator

It takes albatross 10 years to sexually mature, but this time is spent far from land. So where do they — and other adolescent seabirds — actually go? After a sea bird is hatched and fledged its very first flight away from the nest and towards the horizon can last for years. The bird will stay at sea for the whole period of its sexual maturation, which in some species can be ten years. RN's Ann Jones spoke with scientists aboard the RV Investigator who were scanning for sea birds every daylight minute of the voyage. (Photo: ABC RN/ @_annjones_)

The Sampling the Abyss crew are just over a week into their 31-day voyage on board the #RVInvestigator. They're conducting research to discover what lives in the deepest parts of Australia's ocean. We can't wait to hear about what they've discovered!

74 year old WWII mystery solved! SS Macumba was sunk when two Japanese aircraft opened fire on the merchant ship on 6 August 1943. Three crew did not survive and one body was never recovered. Until now the location of the wreck was a mystery. Researchers on our Marine National Facility research vessel Investigator used sophisticated equipment to find the wreck which was being closely guarded by a shark. #csiro #rvinvestigator #shark #discovery #history

0026 and a sticky night on the Arafura/Timor Seas. Seems like a good time to #science 🚢🔬#rvinvestigator

Hellooooo! A Southern Giant Petrel peeking out from his Southern Ocean bubble bath. #ocean #bird #rvinvestigator

Back in Tassie after three weeks at sea on the RV Investigator. Had an amazing experience working alongside some of the best scientists in Australia and seeing some new and exciting organisms and rocks brought up from 5000 meters. #CSIRO #RVinvestigator

Deep down in the ocean having a big mouth and an even bigger stomach is a very good thing. 🐟
This female Humpback Anglerfish (Melanocetus Johnson) was caught in 1000m of water off the coast of eastern Australia just after it had a meal. Take a look at what we found inside it's stomach.

I was lucky enough to be invited on a scientific voyage on CSIRO's amazing research vessel #rvinvestigator as we investigated #production2predation in the deep waters off Australia. It was truly an amazing time. This is just one of the incredible specimens we captured and preserved for scientific research.

We on the social team have been at sea for the last two weeks on RV Investigator. We sailed from Sydney to Broome and saw a whole lot of amazing things.
Top left: The doldrums, particular weather conditions in the tropics lend themselves to peculiar glassy, dimpled waters like these. It felt as though we'd passed into limbo.
Top right: A mastful of blundering boobies. Thirty of these gammy birds landed on our mast and stayed overnight.
Bottom left: We discovered the 74 year old shipwreck of SS Macumba, and sent down our drop cam in the wee hours of the morning to discover this scene.

15 days, Circumnavigated half of Australia, Sydney to Broome. Done a bunch of science on the way. Been a pleasure. #rvinvestigator

Turns out the Timor Sea can be smooth. Silky smooth. #rvinvestigator

Life in the #TimorSea. The wildlife loggers on the #rvinvestigator need a 🍺and a good sleep tonight! Many previously unrecorded interactions going on the books #marinescience #discovery

We're on the #TimorSea, #openocean. No land or other ship in sight. And we can see the reflections of clouds! It's like we slipped into an alternate dimension and will reach the end of the world and sail right over. #allturnstosilverglass #rvinvestigator #definitionofglassy

Looks deceptively featureless.. dolphins, turtles, seasnakes, baitballs and feeding birds! #thisisamazing #tropicalwaters #timorsea #rvinvestigator

0026 and a sticky night on the Arafura/Timor Seas. Seems like a good time to #science 🚢🔬#rvinvestigator

A few days ago we had a Brown Booby, and today we have a matching Red-footed Booby (Sula sula). Red-footed boobies don't migrate, but rather nest on tropical islands.They have a number of different forms (morphs), like overall white, or overall brown. This is a white morph. This individual is looking around keenly, and appears to be a juvenile, judging by the feet, which aren't quite the mature red. (Photo: Eric Woehler)

The facilities for sciencing on this ship are #mindblowing @csirogram #rvinvestigator

This is a Brown Booby (Sula leucogaster), a seabird that nests in tropical islands around this time of year, known to land on ships. Today marked our transition to tropical waters, where we were followed by a pair of Brown Boobies around lunchtime. This individual flew about Investigator for a few minutes, attempting to land, being thwarted by strong winds at the bow. Getting desperate, it landed on the foremast railing where we got this shot of the bird appearing affronted at our equipment. (Photo: Eric Woehler)

Common dolphins making their way alongside our RV Investigator up the east coast, near Byron Bay.
This shot was taken by Eric Woehler from the RV Investigator's 'monkey bridge'. You can see the dolphin at the back has an unfortunate octopus dangling from the beak.

About as close as I'm coming to home on this trip! I was hoping to get some nice photos of #pointlookout from the ocean side, but to be honest, watching the instruments tick over with new information about the sea near where I live is pretty great too! #rvinvestigator

Ahoy hoy!
Never been out on the ocean before? Well we're in the same boat. That's why the social media team is aboard our ship, the RV Investigator, as it steams from Sydney to Broome. The researchers on board will be searching for the sunken SS Macumba, surveying the abundance of sea birds and marine mammals, and measuring iron in the air as it fertilises the ocean's food web.
We'll be sure to upload some hearty ocean-going imagery as we steam ahead.

Home for a couple weeks. See you in Broome. #rvinvestigator #marinescience
