The CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere Hydrochemistry team is leading the INIV 2022 voyage, Hydrochemistry is a part of the Engineering & Technology program within O&A. Hydrochemistry operates laboratories in Hobart and Perth, Australia, as well as routinely aboard RV Investigator. O&A Hydrochemistry specialises in the analysis of oceanographic water parameters, Salinity, Dissolved Oxygen and Dissolved Inorganic Nutrients. The team is comprised of 9 members, all members regularly complete oceanographic voyages.
O&A Hydrochemistry recently published their standard oceanographic nutrient analysis method and protocol, used to achieve highly reproducible nutrient results while at sea. The publication is titled: Methods for reproducible shipboard SFA nutrient measurement using RMNS and automated data processing

The O&A Hydrochemistry team is managed under group leader and chief scientist for the INIV 2022 voyage, Andreas Marouchos.
To maximise the scientific benefit for participants, we are hoping to involve as many international agencies as feasible. 30 scientific staff can be accommodated aboard RV Investigator, this enables the project to include a wide array of participants.
The initial expression of interest round yielded an excellent turnout of 25 submissions. These submissions spanned 12 countries and 21 different agencies.
