The Canyons voyage was initially a 7-week voyage of researchers seeking insights into the flow pathways of dense Antarctic bottom water, along with its sensitivity to changes in climate and impact on seafloor ecosystems. The aim of the project was to help predict how a warming climate will influence future ocean circulation.
The voyage was supported by the ARC Australian Centre for Excellence in Antarctic Science (ACEAS) and by a grant of sea time on RV Investigator from the Marine National Facility, which is operated by CSIRO.
