Information to be Derived:
Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: 60x110 nmi (111x204 km) bathymetric map; water depths and backscatter recorded by Seabeam system; ODEC 3.5 kHz profile digital data along ~2600 nmi (~4815 km) of track.
Staff: James M. Robb, Tammie Middleton
Notes: Processing required; attempt to minimize artifacts of poorly corrected ship-roll in bathymetry data. Seismic line info and navigation track not yet available. Contact Mary Scranton, SUNY, for station information. Original Center People field contained: James Robb (co-chief sci), Tammie Middleton (GIS). Original Submitted By field contained: Jim Robb, Brad Butman.
