  Description:
    Abstract:
      United States Geological Survey, Woods Hole, Massachusetts.
      Chief Scientist: Byron Ruppel. Geophysical data (bathymetry,
      gravity) of field activity 85005 (P-3-85-CB) in Caribbean
      from 03/14/1985 to 03/28/1985,
      http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/p/p385cb/html/p-3-85-cb.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 -

      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.
