Palmer Station Antarctica LTER

Basic Western Antarctic Peninsula Survey Grid

Station locations for the 20km x 10km Palmer Station Antarctica LTER sampling grid.

The Palmer LTER established from the program onset both a regional grid (900km x 200km West of the Antarctic peninsula) as well as a Palmer basin grid (within 2 mile limit of station) as organizing elements of the annual sampling strategy. Grid locations West of the Antarctic Peninsula may be calculated from latitude-longitude coordinates in order to establish a location within the LTER regional grid reference frame.
