      DATA ACQUIRED:

        

      4,126 nautical miles of tracklines were run with the systems listed

      above.

        

      Data consist of:

        

      1)  GLORIA:

        

      a)  12 reels of 9-track digital magnetic tapes

        

      b)  12 reels of analog magnetic tapes

        

      c)  464 photo negatives, speed rectified side scan data

        

      d)  shipboard monitor records, photo prints

        

      2)  Airgun:

        

      a)  59 reels of analog magnetic tape

        

      b)  shipboard monitor records

        

      3)  10-kHz Echo Sounder

        

      a)  2 sec. sweep shipboard records

        

      b)  0.5 sec. sweep shipboard records

        

      4)  Navigation

        

      a)  50 Northstar cassette recordings from bridge

        

      b)  19 magnetic tapes from seismic lab

        

      c)  8 rolls printout from bridge

        

      d)  4 rolls printout from seismic lab

        

      e)  1 reel digital 9-track tape of Loran C plus satellite

      fixes with water depths

        

      5)  XBT:

        

      69 XBT recordings

        

      The cruise collected 3,731 nautical miles of data on the Continental

      Slope in 17 days for the USGS, and in 2 additional days, collected 395

      nautical miles for an IPOD site survey on the Mississippi Fan.  The IPOD data

      will be deposited in the IPOD data bank when processing is completed.
