  Description:
    Abstract:
      Chief Scientists: Monty Hampton, Victor Diaz-del-Rio.
      Geophysical data (navigation, samples) of field activity
      G-2-86-MS in Gulf of Cadiz from 07/10/1986 to 07/15/1986,
      http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/g/g286ms/html/g-2-86-ms.meta.html.

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

    Supplemental_Information:

      Equipment Used -

      navigation                    data directory exists

      samples                       data directory exists


      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.

      If available, access to physical samples is
      described in the "WR CMG Sample Distribution
      Policy" at:
      http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/programs/html/main/sample-dist-policy.html

      Primary access to the USGS/CMG Information
      Bank's digital data, analog data, and
      metadata is provided through...
