02-Apr-2004 -- We visited the 70°S 170°E confluence point on 2 April, 2004 at 17:56 local time (04:56 GMT) aboard the US Antarctic Program’s vessel Nathaniel B. Palmer. This was the location of our last CTD station, out of 232 that were performed during an oceanography cruise that left McMurdo Station (Antarctica) on 23 Feb and returned to Lyttleton (New Zealand) on 9 Apr.
