  Description:
    Abstract:
      Chief Scientist: John Gann. Geophysical data
      (integratednavigation, dopplersonar, LoranC, gravity,
      straitline) of field activity P-8-85-CN in Gulf of Maine from

      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.
