      A report by Bruce H. Nelson and Dale E. Tidrick

      of Naval Oceanographic Office (NAVOCEANO)

      

      "Seismic profiles in the Gulf of Mexico USNS Sgt. GEORGE  D. KEATHLEY

      (T-AGS 35) 19 April-11 June 1970," Dec 1971,  contain

      11 pages of operations description, photo of ship, equipment configuration

      plus 47 reduced 4" wide reproductions of the seismic lines

      laid out horizontally with magnetics and shiptrack on 11x17 paper.

      The Teledyne 60 KJ seismic section profiler images

      were generated from microfilmed prints of the profiles.



      Original records went to the CICAR data repository, C&GS,

      Environmental Science Services Admin, NOAA.


      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

      Bank's digital data, analog data, and
      metadata is provided through...
