  Description:
    Abstract:
      United States Geological Survey, Corpus Christi, Texas.
      Chief Scientist: Eli Silver. Geophysical data (bathymetry) of
      field activity UGEOLEG_4 (U-4-71-CB) in Venezuela, Caribbean
      Sea from 08/18/1971 to 10/01/1971,
      http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/u/u471cb/html/u-4-71-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:

      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.
