Summary for Field Activity Number 1985-039-FA

Alternate Leg ID: 85 Leg 4

Area of Operations: EEZ of Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, United States, Caribbean Sea, North America, North Atlantic

Dates: November 04, 1985 to December 03, 1985

Objectives: The purpose of this cruise was to map the entire ocean floor of the EEZ of Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Type of Activity: Sea Floor Mapping

Information to be derived: Sea Floor Map

Summary: The GLORIA sidescan sonar data are of excellent quality and complete coverage of the EEZ area was obtained. No down-time was experienced by GLORIA. The airgun, 10 kHz echo sounder and magnetic data are also of high quality with only a few hours of airgun data lost because of technical problems. The 3.5 kHz echo sounder records vary in quality from good to very noisy. This cruise was made scientifically successful and most enjoyable by the cooperation and competence of the ships officers and crew and our multinational scientific staff.
