  Description:
    Abstract:
      Scripps Institution of Oceanography. Chief Scientist:
      Unspecified. Geophysical data (bathymetry, navigation) of
      field activity O-3-64-WG in Prince William Sound, AK from
      07/16/1964 to 08/21/1964,
      http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/o/o364wg/html/o-3-64-wg.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

      navigation                    data directory exists


      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.).
