Vanessa.Lucieer@utas.edu.au

Dr Vanessa Lucieer is Senior Research Fellow at the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies.  Her research profile focuses on two national projects: the ARC Special Research Initiative- Antarctic Gateway and the National Environmental Science Program (NESP) Marine Biodiversity Hub.

Vanessa is the deputy leader of the Ecology and Biodiversity program, which represents a multidisciplinary group of colleagues. In particular her research focus is on the development of spatial analysis methods for translating remotely sensed data into information that be utilised to understand marine environments.  The applications of her techniques have been applied to coastal rocky reefs in shallow temperate ecosystems to under sea ice in Antarctica to the seabeds of the fjords of Norway.

Career summary

Qualifications

  • PhD (2007): Spatial Uncertainty Estimation Techniques for Shallow Coastal Seabed Mapping, University of Tasmania
  • BA (1st Class Hons, Remote Sensing and Geomatics, 1999): A Mico-climatic Survey of Leura Site, Pipers Brook Vineyard, University of Tasmania

Biography

Dr Lucieer joined the former Tasmanian Aquaculture and Fisheries Institute in 2000 to develop a method for mapping Tasmania's marine protected areas. This research grew into the SeaMap Tasmania Project which she managed from 2005-2009. Over the course of several years Dr Lucieer worked with her team to map over 10 000 km2 of shallow coastal seabed in Tasmania. Since 2007 however, she began to extend her research into deeper shelf waters off Tasmania, Western Australia, Victoria and New South Wales through the federally funded Marine Biodiversity Hub. Dr Lucieer is now actively working on benthic mapping research projects in Canada, Norway, New Zealand and Antarctica.

She has authored over 30 peer reviewed publications since her PhD completion in 2007 and has secured close to $2M in research funding. She collaborates widely both nationally and internationally and is keen to develop new research relations with PhD students seeking an Australian seafloor mapping experience.

Vanessa's role in research currently encompasses three broad areas 1) Scientific and Research Coordinator of the Antarctic Gateway Theme 4- Development of a polar capable AUV; 2) Research coordinator and spatial analyst on the Marine Biodiversity Hub evaluating and monitoring the status of marine biodiversity assets on the continental shelf and; 3) Supervision and teaching of HDR candidates at the Australian Maritime College and the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies.

The diversity of roles that Vanessa engages in is a reflection of the multidisciplinary nature of marine surveying.  Marine surveying is a foundation discipline that generates knowledge to answer specific questions about understanding our marine environment.

Research Themes

Dr Lucieer's research aligns to the University's research theme of Marine, Antarctic and Maritime. She has 17 years of experience in developing marine spatial analysis techniques for seabed mapping.  She has experience in field data acquisition from ships and autonomous underwater vehicles, in data processing, to project management and communications. She has a number of research publications and reports and is internationally recognised in the field of benthic marine habitat mapping and seabed surveying through a number of invited presentations and collaborations.

Synthesising acoustic data (bathymetry and backscatter) into spatial layers to be utilised in modelling and mapping of marine habitats is the focus of her current research. The importance of seabed data such as bathymetry has been acknowledged by mariners, ocean modellers, marine geologists, ocean engineers and others who work on or by the sea, but among the general public only the boating community understands the importance of knowing water depths and the shape of the seafloor. The accuracy of seabed data is critical to reliable forecast models in planning for marine disasters caused by tsunamis and storm surges and large wind waves due to storms, for marine biodiversity planning where seafloor geomorphology can act as a proxy for marine habitats and in mapping for marine discovery by characterising seafloor habitats.

It has commonly been quoted that the oceans are '95% unexplored' and that we know more about the surface of the moon or mars than the ocean floor. But what do we mean by unexplored? The entire ocean floor has been mapped to 5 km resolution by scientists using satellites to estimate the landscape of the seafloor and reveal feature of the Earth's crust beneath seafloor sediments. As long as these features are greater than 5km across they can be identified. What we have not achieved is mapping at a resolution that can allow us to understand the distribution of biologically significant habitats on the seafloor. Prediction modelling makes some progress in improving our understanding of particular habitats for some species based on bathymetry- but there is yet much more to explore and learn about our global seabeds. This understanding is the goal of Dr Lucieer's research and the foundation of the international studies that she contributes to.

Projects

Building capability for in situ quantitative characterisation of the ocean water column using acoustic multibeam backscatter data (2017 - 2018)$70,205
Description
New Zealand has sovereign rights over 4,000,000 km2 of ocean in which resources (fish, minerals, hydrocarbons, energy) are vast and mostly unquantified. The project will enhance our capability to characteriseand manage this natural capital using marine acoustic technology. We will develop protocols and methodologies for identifying and quantifying features such as gas seeps, oil leaks, vegetation and freshwater springs in the ocean using acoustic data collected by modern echosounders. We will establish a long-lasting multidisciplinary research consortium of internationally recognised experts in marine acoustics and geophysics, spatial analysis and ocean environment, from New Zealand (NIWA), France (Gosciences Rennes, IFREMER), Germany (GEOMAR) and Australia (IMAS), to share data from various natural and controlled sites and share knowledge and expertise developed from years of research. The aim is to stimulate the development of a truly international and collaborative research programme with articulated goals and tangible outcomes to examine water-column backscatter data. Through two workshops we will lay the foundation for a larger externally funded research project that will develop innovative methods for identifying and quantifying natural and man-made acoustic back-scatterers. This will provide considerable economic, environmental and cultural benefit to New Zealand by improving its capacity to manage the marine environment.

Working from the other side: Facing the challenges of under-ice for autonomous navigation in Antarctica (2016)$0
Description
Accurate navigation under both drift and stationary ice is one of the key unanswered questions in polar marine science and engineering. The primary aims of this project are to (1) estimate INS drift and calibration times; and, (2) test the integration of acoustic positioning methods in an INS within a drifting and rotating frame of reference. This project will develop error propagation models at increasing latitudes and test the use of a non-stationary, ship borne acoustic positioning network on a small (<3 m) AUV. Both are critical for robust, accurate and reliable AUV operation under-ice.

Working from the other side: Facing the challenges of under-ice for autonomous navigation in Antarctica (2015)$180,000
Description
One of the key subthemes of the Australian Maritime Colleges (AMC) 2014-2018 strategic plan is the development of underwater vehicles for use in the marine and Antarctic science research fields. AMC is committed to the development of an Underwater Autonomous Mapping facility. The long-term vision is to create a multi-use facility developing various robotic platforms to create solutions for specific scientific and engineering questions in coastal to ice-covered waters. One of the key current deficiencies within this research and training program is a long-term lab manager employed to help with the strategic management of the AUV facility. This proposal calls for the creation of an ongoing appointment at AMC with the specialized skillset required for research and student training. This role is critical in order to maintain and develop a research program unique in Australia and a world leader in the AUV domain.

Description
This proposal addresses how to obtain better information on sea ice properties to improve quantification of ecosystem properties and processes, to test models of ice dynamics and monitor changes in ecosystem dynamics. With increasing focus on the role of Antarctic sea ice in global processes, use of new technologies to make robust, cost-effective measurements at appropriate spatial scales is increasingly necessary. This project uses an UAV to obtain and use data that will transform our spatial understanding of sea ice and its biological communities.
