Additional Documentation: NGDC has multibeam bathymetric data for this cruise, however the tracklines, found here in GEODAS do not exactly correspond to the multibm data available. No multibeam bathymetry available for this survey north of 16.25 degrees N. Other data reported to have been collected on this cruise were Deep Tow, seismics, 3.5 kHz, PUPPI, acoustic navigation, backscatter. Navigation for the multibeam bathymetry was adjusted to match bathymetry in, the survey area.
