Organization Scripps Institution of Oceanography
Project/Theme Circe
Activity Type Geophysical
Platform Argo
Area of Operation Argo Circe, North Pacific Ocean
Bounding Coordinates
130.25000    -100.25000

Analog Materials list
Equipment Used
To study bottom topography, magnetic patterns, heat flow, sediments
and variations of the earth's magnetic field near the equator in the Western
Pacific, Indian, and southern Atlantic Oceans.
Information to be Derived
Seismic reflection profiles.
Circe Expedition, a circumnavigation of the world which explored
the western Pacific, Indian and southern Atlantic oceans with
support from the National Science Foundation and the Office of
Naval Research.  During this expedition, participants studied
bottom topography, magnetic patterns, heat flow, sediments and
variations of the earth's magnetic field near the equator.  Data
pertinent to the sea floor spreading theory was collected.  The
expedition used a seagoing computer and a satellite navigation
system, which was unique at that time.
