  Description:
    Abstract:
      Chief Scientist: Jan Morton. Geophysical data
      (integratednavigation, magnetics, bathymetry) of field
      activity S-3-87-SP in Southern Pacific from 03/09/1987 to
      03/31/1987,
      http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/s/s387sp/html/s-3-87-sp.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 -

      integratednavigation

      magnetics

      bathymetry


      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
