  Description:
    Abstract:
      Geophysical data (bathymetry, magnetics) of field activity
      I-2-78-NP in West coast of Mexico from 06/10/1978 to
      06/29/1978,
      http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/i/i278np/html/i-2-78-np.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 -

      bathymetry

      magnetics


      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
