It's All Academic: mapping the ocean floor

Dr Robin Beaman is a marine geoscientist from James Cook University, who is working to map Australia's underwater landscape. He started out in the navy, but quickly realised he wanted to take his passion further. Today he specialises in the deep Great Barrier Reef and has some interesting stories to tell about his work, including his time on the the CSIRO's Marine National Facility research vessel, the Southern Surveyor.
