Visit to the RV Investigator

On Tuesday 15 October thirty-three Darwin High School Year 10 students took a tour of the CSIRO’s RV Investigator.

The RV Investigator is Australia’s state-of-the-art marine research vessel, supporting atmospheric, oceanographic, and biological and geosciences research. Students spent an hour exploring the 94 metre long, 7 story high blue-water research vessel and had the opportunity to see first-hand the wide range of scientific equipment of a working research vessel.

The Investigator can travel up to 10.800 miles in a single voyage, carrying up to 60 scientists, technicians and crew from the equator to the Antarctic ice-edge on voyages lasting up to 60 days. Operated by the CSIRO Marine National Facility, this is the first time the ship has visited Darwin.
