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:

Equipment Used -
