Abstract:
Chief Scientist: Paul Carlson. Data (bathymetry, meters, navigation) of field activity K-2-91-BG in Bering Glacier, Alaska from 07/02/1991 to 07/06/1991, <http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/k/k291bg/html/k-2-91-bg.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
meters data directory exists
navigation data directory exists
Notes -
Geopulse, 3.5 khz bathymetry, sidescan, and sampling
from Icy Bay to Vitus Lake

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... <http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/>
This page accomodates a variety of search approaches (e.g., by platform, by region, by scientist, by equipment type, etc.).
