Abstract:
Geophysical data (bathymetry, gravity, magnetics) of field activity K-2-81-NP in Northern Pacific from 07/29/1981 to 08/24/1981, <http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/k/k281np/html/k-2-81-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 -
