Implementation Plan

The U.S. JGOFS Antarctic Environment and Southern Ocean Process Study (AESOPS) began field work on August 29, 1996 and ended during April of 1998. The cruises were staged from Lyttleton, New Zealand. The Southern Ocean field program was coordinated by Antarctic Support Associates (ASA), who operated the R/V Nathaniel B. Palmer, one of the two ships utilized. The Palmer is currently operated by Raytheon Polar Services.

During the second year of field work, the R/V Roger Revelle hosted the US JGOFS scientists. The Revelle's cruise schedule is maintained at The Scripps Institution of Oceanography.

Anyone wishing to use U.S. JGOFS data in a presentation, report, thesis or publication should contact the originating PI. It is expected that all customary courtesies and privileges attached to data use will be strictly honored.
