Title:
Geophysical data of field activity H-1-87-CN in Beaufort Sea, Canada from 09/06/1987 to 09/12/1987
Abstract:
Canadian Geological Survey. Geophysical data (seismic) of field activity H-1-87-CN in Beaufort Sea, Canada from 09/06/1987 to 09/12/1987, <http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/h/h187cn/html/h-1-87-cn.meta.html>.
Supplemental_Information:

Equipment Used -
seismic

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... <http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/>
