R/V Nathaniel B. Palmer NBP0007A - The Young Marginal Rift as a Key to Understanding the Rift-Drift Transition and Andean Orogenesis: OBS Refraction Profiling for Crustal Structure in the Bransfield Strait
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 NBP0007A on the R/V Nathaniel B. Palmer. This leg started at Punta Arenas, Chile and ended at Punta Arenas, Chile.
