RV Sonne survey of Queensland Plateau
July 02, 2022

One of the world’s largest research vessels, Germany’s RV Sonne, has completed a month-long marine science expedition (SO292) to the Queensland Plateau conducting multibeam surveying, sub-bottom profiling and underwater camera transects around these giant coral atolls.

Congratulations to Prof. Christian Betzler (University of Hamburg) and the Sonne team. Prof Jody Webster (University of Sydney) and Dr Robin Beaman (James Cook University) are pleased to have assisted in the planning of this survey in a fascinating part of Australia’s Coral Sea Marine Park.
