Research vessels Laurence M. Gould, left, and Nathaniel B. Palmer sit docked at Palmer Station, Anvers Island, Antarctica. The smaller LMG serves as shuttle between Punta Arenas, Chile, and Palmer Station, ferrying personnel and cargo on a routine basis. It also conducts some science data gathering as it crosses the Drake Passage. The larger NBP is the primary research vessel for the U.S. Antarctic Program.
