Antarctic and Southern Ocean Data Portal

The Antarctic and Southern Ocean Data Portal provides access to geoscience data, primarily marine, from the Antarctic region. The synthesis began in 2003 as the Antarctic Multibeam Bathymetry and Geophysical Data Synthesis (AMBS) with a focus on multibeam bathymetry field data and other geophysical data from the Southern Ocean collected with the

R/V N. B. Palmer

. In 2005, the effort was expanded to include all routine underway geophysical and oceanographic data collected with both the

R/V N. B. Palmer

and

R/V L. Gould

, the two primary research vessels serving the US Antarctic Program.
