CSIRO from Australia is undertaking a survey tour towards the Australian Bight for a baseline survey looking for oil traces in the water. The surveyors are deploying a CTD and a gravity corer measuring possible traces of oil in the water column. The survey mission also consists of hydrographic mapping techniques, GIS and environmental specialists to make sure the situation before exploration is mapped well in order to know what the environmental consequences of an eventual oil seepage or leak may consist of.
