Palmer Station Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) R/V Nathaniel B. Palmer Fall Cruise Data, March 1993

Abstract: Data was collected during the Austral fall LTER R/V Nathaniel
B. Palmer cruise covering region within the large scale LTER grid.

Major objectives included: 1. Hydrographic survey of entire study
region (all of large scale LTER grid); 2. Extended temporal (fall
season) and spatial (further northeast and southwest) scale coverage
of LTER data sets; 3. First cruise of two sets of paired cruises to
test a working hypothesis about the effect of the extent of winter ice
cover on larval krill survival; 4. Picking up and redeploying sediment
traps placed in Palmer Basin in Nov92.
