  Description:
    Abstract:
      Chief Scientists: Erk Reimnitz, Peter Barnes. Geophysical
      data (bathymetry, sidescansonar, multibeam) of field activity
      K-1-85-AR in Arctic from 09/04/1985 to 09/04/1985,
      http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/k/k185ar/html/k-1-85-ar.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

      sidescansonar

      multibeam                     Simrad


      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...
