Palmer Station Antarctica LTER

Full Western Antarctic Peninsula Survey Grid

Title
Station locations for the full Palmer Station Antarctica LTER sampling grid including the 20km x 10km grid, 5km x 5km grid, inshore stations, Palmer basin stations, high density grid, picket line 10km, picket line 3km and picket line multi.

Abstract
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.
