Title:
Data of field activity S-1-90-IN in Indian Ocean from 12/03/1990 to 12/17/1990
Abstract:
National Institute of Polar Research. Data (bathymetry, gravity, navigation) of field activity S-1-90-IN in Indian Ocean from 12/03/1990 to 12/17/1990, <http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/s/s190in/html/s-1-90-in.meta.html>.
Supplemental_Information:

Equipment Used -

<A HREF = "<http://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/mgg/dat/gdas/plot/trkdas/JARE32L2.pdf>"><http://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/mgg/dat/gdas/plot/trkdas/JARE32L2.pdf>

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>
Primary access to the USGS/CMG Information Bank's digital data, analog data, and metadata is provided through... <http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/>
This page accomodates a variety of search approaches (e.g., by platform, by region, by scientist, by equipment type, etc.).
