Title:
Geological and Geophysical data of field activity PLSTAR-1 (P-1-88-AR) in Arctic from 09/02/1988 to 09/28/1988
Abstract:
Chief Scientist: Art Grantz. Geological and Geophysical data (pistoncore, gravitycore, gravity, GPS) of field activity PLSTAR-1 (P-1-88-AR) in Arctic from 09/02/1988 to 09/28/1988, <http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/p/p188ar/html/p-1-88-ar.meta.html>.
Supplemental_Information:

Equipment Used -
pistoncore
gravitycore
gravity
GPS Trimble and 10X GPS navigation systems

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.).
