Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory
Palisades, New York
Supporting Stations: ARSV Laurence M. Gould
Research Locations: LTER Study Site / Palmer Station
This LTER component takes responsibility for processing and analyzing hydrographic data. The data are used to describe the hydrography and circulation in the Palmer area in particular, and the Western Antarctic Peninsula (WAP) region in general, with a focus on developing circulation and coupled physical-biological models. The Antarctic shelf regions are influenced by circumpolar deep waters, and the circulation pattern in the region shows large-scale flows influenced by topography.
Field Season Overview:
During the annual LTER cruise aboard the ARSV Laurence M. Gould this group will conduct standard hydrographic surveys with the Conductivity Temperature Depth (CTD) Rosette. In addition, three physical oceanographic moorings will be recovered, serviced and redeployed.
