Other ID: HUNT Cruise 3; Leg III
Organization(s): USGS, Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center
Principal Investigator(s): William Dillon, John C. Hathaway
Data Type(s): Electro-Magnetic: Magnetics, Location-Elevation: Navigation, Seismics: Air Gun / Water Gun, Seismics: Sonobouy, Sonar: Sidescan
Scientific Purpose/Goals: The purpose of the cruise was to make detailed surveys of possible sites for shallow drilling on the outer continental shelf. The areas covered were the northern and southern edges of Georges Bank; Physalis, Mytilus and Bear Seamounts; and lines in transit to and from these areas.
