The Southern Surveyor was Australia’s only ocean-going research vessel, and for more than twenty years has been gathering marine data vital to understanding the topography and currents of Australian seas. Furthermore, in the face of climate change, monitoring activity in the world’s oceans has never been more important work for our future. Mark Horstman climbs aboard the Southern Surveyor as she embarks on her last scientific voyage, and deploys a floating weather station that will track the oceanic processes of climate change.
