Alternate Leg ID: LIMNOS-89-1
Area of Operations: Lake Huron, Georgian Bay, Great Lakes, Canada, North America
Dates: May 13, 1989 to May 26, 1989
Objectives: To collect marine gravity and bathymetry data on Lake Huron and Georgian Bay at a 5 nm line spacing in the east-west direction. This survey is in support of the GLIMPCE Project. The proposed survey covers 3,400 nm in the 14 day period.

Information to be derived:
Summary: The CSS LIMNOS departed Sarnia, Ontario on 13 May 1989 at 1300Z (0900 local). On 19 May 1989 the ship stopped in Goderich, Ontario for a mid-cruise gravity land station tie and departed after 4 hours. The cruise ended back in Sarnia, Ontario on 26 May 1989 at 1815Z (1415 local). Both sea gravity meters were run and compared continuously in real time by the navigation and gravity logging system. The only major problems encountered were on the 24th and 25th of May while in Lake Michigan. The weather turned bad and the LORAN-C chain went off the air for scheduled repairs. Consequently, lines J5, J6 and J7 are of lower quality. A total of 3030.4 nm were steamed in 13 days, of which 2450.3 nm were surveyed miles. The cruise unadjusted crosscheck statistics were 1.3 mgals rms for 55 points with a mean of 0.2 mgals.
