  Description:
    Abstract:
      Geophysical data (bathymetry) of field activity M-1-67-SP
      in Southern Pacific from 10/30/1967 to 01/15/1968,
      http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/m/m167sp/html/m-1-67-sp.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

      Notes -

      Data from NGDC


      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
