  Description:
    Abstract:
      Canadian Geological Survey. Chief Scientist: Unspecified.
      Geophysical data (bathymetry, gravity, magnetics) of field
      activity B-2-70-BS in Bering Sea, Alaska from 07/15/1970 to
      07/18/1970,

    Purpose:
      These data and information are intended for science
      researchers, students from elementary through
      college, policy makers, and general public.

      Similar information is available for thousands
      of other USGS/CMG-related Activities.

      If known, available are Activity-specific
      navigation, gravity, magnetics, bathymetry,
      seismic, and sampling data; track maps; and
      equipment information; as well as summary
      overviews, crew lists, and information
      about analog materials.
