Description:
Abstract:
Chief Scientists: Mike Field, Sam Clarke. Geological and Geophysical data (integratednavigation, RhoRho, miniranger, transitsatellite, 3dot5khz, magnetics, tempsalinometer, gravitycore, uniboom, airgun, sparker) of field activity S-12-78-NC in Coos Bay, Oregon from 11/02/1978 to 11/12/1978, <http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/s/s1278nc/html/s-12-78-nc.meta.html>.
Purpose:
These data and information are intended for science researchers, students from elementary through college, policy makers, and general public.
