    Abstract:
      United States Geological Survey, Reston, Virginia. Chief
      Scientist: Byron Ruppel. Geophysical data (bathymetry,
      gravity, meter32, meter41) of field activity POWLP2-85-CB
      (P-2-85-CB) in Caribbean from 03/01/1985 to 03/11/1985,
      http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/p/p285cb/html/p-2-85-cb.meta.html.

    Purpose:
      These data and information are intended for science
      researchers, students from elementary through
      college, policy makers, and general public.

      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.
