  Description:
    Abstract:
      University of Hawaii. Chief Scientist: Fritz Theyer. Data of
      field activity K-3-76-NP in Honolulu to Midway, Northern
      Pacific from 09/05/1976 to 10/01/1976,
      http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/k/k376np/html/k-3-76-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:


      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.).
