  Description:
    Abstract:
      Chief Scientist: Byron Ruppel. Geophysical data (gravity,
      integratednavigation, meter32, meter41) of field activity
      P-7-85-CN in Gulf of Maine, Nova Scotia from 07/17/1985 to
      09/17/1985,

      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:
