        abstract:  Net, CTD, bottle, and other data were collected from the NATHANIEL B. PALMER from the Antarctic Ocean (> 60 degrees South) from 08 September 1996 to 25 April 1997. Data were collected in suport of the Joint Global Ocean Flux Study (JGOFS) / Southern Ocean and the US JGOFS Antarctic Environments Southern Ocean Process Study (AESOPS) projects. Zooplankton were collected using a Multiple Opening Closing Net and Environmental Sampling System (MOCNESS) and displaced volumes were determined. CTD parameters include conductivity, temperature, and salinity profiles. Bottle parameters include concentrations of trace metals.
        purpose:  This dataset is available to the public for a wide variety of uses including scientific research and analysis.
