Description Single-beam bathymetry data along with radar and Loran-C navigation data was collected as part of the U.S. Geological Survey cruise G-1-77-EG. The cruise was conducted in Southern California from May 24 to June 1, 1978. The chief scientists were Bill Normark and Gordon Hess from the USGS Coastal and Marine Geology office in Menlo Park, CA. The geophysical source was a 12 kilohertz (kHz) and 3.5 kHz system. These data are reformatted from space-delimited ASCII text files located in the Coastal and Marine Geology Program (CMGP) InfoBank field activity catalog at http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/g/g177eg/html/g-1-77-eg.meta.htmlinto MGD77T format provided by the NOAA's National Geophysical Data Center(NGDC). The MGD77T format includes a header (documentation) file (.h77t) and a data file (.m77t). More information regarding this format can be found in the publication listed in the Cross_reference section of this metadata file. [More]
