Abstract: Data was collected during the Austral summer LTER time-series R/V
Polar Duke cruise.

The cruise was carried out in three phases with repeated sampling of
inshore stations. Phase I covers standard transect lines 600 and 500.
Phase II is composed of sampling the bird foraging area using three
methods: picket-fence sampling, high density grid, and zodiac
observations. Phase III covered the standard transect lines 200, 300
and 400. Inshore stations B to E were occupied three times throughout
the cruise while B and E were occupied an additional three times to
provide a time-series of the inshore grid.
