R/V Nathaniel B. Palmer NBP0802 - Ross-Sea outer continental shelf morphology and near-surface stratigraphy: Quaternary ice-sheet grounding-zone migrations and stratigraphy
Entry ID: NBP0802


Summary
Abstract: R/V Nathaniel B. Palmer NBP0802 - Ross-Sea outer continental shelf morphology and near-surface stratigraphy: Quaternary ice-sheet grounding-zone migrations and stratigraphy: Quaternary ice-sheet grounding-zone migrations and the LGM dilemma.

The NSF-supported research icebreaker Nathaniel B. Palmer operates year-round in support of the U.S. Antarctic Program, carrying out global change studies in biological, chemical, physical, and oceanographic disciplines.
This data set consists of underway data from leg NBP0802 on the R/V Nathaniel B. Palmer. This leg started at McMurdo Station and ended at McMurdo Station.
