  Description:
    Abstract:
      Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute. Chief Scientists:
      Homa Lee, Charlie Paull. Piston Coring data (pistoncore) of
      field activity O-3-99-MB in Pt. Sur, Monterey Canyon,
      California from 06/25/1999 to 06/29/1999,
      http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/o/o399mb/html/o-3-99-mb.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 -

      pistoncore


      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...
