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.
