The NSF-supported research icebreaker Laurence M. Gould 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 LMG0402 on the R/V Laurence M. Gould. This leg started at Punta Arenas, Chile and ended at Punta Arenas, Chile.

The latitudes and longitudes provided in spatial coverage are approximate only.
Taken from the 2008-2009 Progress Report: ... Laboratory activity/analysis: Samples from both cargo, food and passengers have been examined for propagules. Identification evaluation for most samples is near complete. Sample evaluation will be completed by the end of May. Data analyses will be completed in the second half of of 2009. A workshop for data analysis and write up is scheduled for July at the SCAR Biology Symposium. Initial analysis of the 5600 passenger survey responses have been completed.
Taken from the 2009-2010 Progress Report: Propagule cross checking has been halted due the need for us to move laboratories late in 2009. Our new laboratory is still not yet functioning so this work has been delayed. Data analysis has also been delayed.
Data have not yet been collected.
