Additional Documentation: Data for August 8, 1984 are from URI processed multibeam data. No multibeam bathymetry available between 16.250 and 19.735 degrees W. URI single beam bathymetric data from an interpolation scheme of 1 MINUTE, EXTRACTIONS CLOSEST TO THE MINUTE (VERTICAL BM), NGDC has most of the multibeam bathy data for this cruise, however the, tracklines here in GEODAS do not exactly represent the multibeam data, available from NGDC.
