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/>

    Raw depth (bathymetry) data
    data reformatted from Steve May's file, BATHY92.DAT, 23-JUL-93:
    FILE BATHY92.DAT CONTAINS WATER DEPTHS AT 1 MIN. INTERVALS FOR P1-92-AR.
    FIRST NUMBER IS THE JULIAN DAY, HOUR, AND MIN. COMBINED; THE SECOND IS DEPTH
            IN METERS.
    WATER DEPTHS OBTAINED BY MEASUREMENTS MADE ON THE ORIGINAL LSR RECORDS AT
            INFECTION POINT.  THEN THE COMPLETE RECORD WAS MADE BY INTERPOLATING
            THE INTERVENING POINTS.
    THERE ARE GAPS IN THE TIME RECORD WHERE THE BATHY SYSTEM WAS DOWN.
