Abstract:
Chief Scientist: Takahiro Sato. Geophysical data (bathymetry, gravity, integratednavigation) of field activity M-1-68-NP in Northern Pacific from 06/03/1968 to 06/22/1968, <http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/m/m168np/html/m-1-68-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 -
bathymetry
gravity
integratednavigation
Notes -
Data supplied by National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC) as of 12/21/87
<http://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/ngdc.html>

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.).
