  Description:
    Abstract:
      United States Geological Survey, Woods Hole, Massachusetts.
      Chief Scientist: Bill Dillon. Geophysical data (gravity,
      meters, navigation) of field activity 87001 (S-1-87-CB) in
      Caribbean Sea from 01/09/1987 to 01/18/1987,
      http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/s/s187cb/html/s-1-87-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 -

      gravity                       data directory exists

      meters                        data directory exists

      navigation                    data directory exists

      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.
