Abstract:
United States Geological Survey, Menlo Park, California. Chief Scientists: Mark Wheeler, Bruce Molnia. Geological and Geophysical data (3dot5khz, Shipekgrab) of field activity D-1-79-EG in Eastern Gulf of Alaska from 05/24/1979 to 06/01/1979, <http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/d/d179eg/html/d-1-79-eg.meta.html>.
Purpose:
These data and information are intended for science researchers, students from elementary through college, policy makers, and general public.
Supplemental_Information:
