  Description:
    Abstract:
      Geophysical data (bathymetry, magnetics, navigation) of
      field activity I-6-77-NP in Off west coast Mexico from
      06/19/1977 to 06/27/1977,
      http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/i/i677np/html/i-6-77-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                    data directory exists

      magnetics                     data directory exists

      navigation                    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
