Equipment Used
Survey the Continental Slope in the northern Gulf of Mexico with the
GLORIA long-range sidescan sonar, a cooperative study with the
Institute of Oceanographic Sciences, Godalming, England.
	4,126 nautical miles of tracklines were run with the systems listed
    Data consist of:
	1)  GLORIA:
		a)  12 reels of 9-track digital magnetic tapes
		b)  12 reels of analog magnetic tapes
		c)  464 photo negatives, speed rectified side scan data
		d)  shipboard monitor records, photo prints
	2)  Airgun:
		a)  59 reels of analog magnetic tape
		b)  shipboard monitor records
	3)  10-kHz Echo Sounder
		a)  2 sec. sweep shipboard records
		b)  0.5 sec. sweep shipboard records
	4)  Navigation
		a)  50 Northstar cassette recordings from bridge
		b)  19 magnetic tapes from seismic lab
		c)  8 rolls printout from bridge
		d)  4 rolls printout from seismic lab
		e)  1 reel digital 9-track tape of Loran C plus satellite
                    fixes with water depths
	5)  XBT:
		69 XBT recordings
	The cruise collected 3,731 nautical miles of data on the Continental
Slope in 17 days for the USGS, and in 2 additional days, collected 395
nautical miles for an IPOD site survey on the Mississippi Fan.  The IPOD data
will be deposited in the IPOD data bank when processing is completed.
