  Description:
    Abstract:
      Chief Scientist: Dave Drake. Geophysical data (3dot5khz,
      12khz, Geoprobe) of field activity S-11-78-WG in Western Gulf
      of Alaska from 10/20/1978 to 10/22/1978,
      http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/s/s1178wg/html/s-11-78-wg.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 -

      3dot5khz                      3.5 khz bathymetry

      12khz                         12 khz bathymetry

      Geoprobe


      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
