Equipment Used
Deploy bottom tripod and guard buoys for EuroSTRATAFORM experiment
Extensive Chirp subottom lines collected by Mike Field;
Tripods deployed for Spanish and Univ. of Washington
co-investigators. Problems with French clearance meant USGS tripod
was not deployed and returned to US on Oceanus.
Notes First of three-leg deployment. Three USGS scientific parties
on various legs (Field and Lee are PIs on other projects) This
covers only work from Woods Hole, with Sherwood as PI
