Scotian Shelf - No.4, 1964 Data Record Series (NCEI Accession 7600726)

The data in this report were obtained in conjunction with a geophysical program undertaken in the North American Basin of the Atlantic Ocean.

Observations on the cruise also included studies of the heat production in sediments by living organisms, organic matter in sea water, and collection of sediment samples. The main project concentrated on magnetic measurements, echo sounding traverse, and checking of seismic refraction equipment.

The eight stations of the Halifax oceanographic section which is generally occupied seasonally for assessment of Scotian Shelf water conditions,were occupied on this cruise for the Atlantic Oceanographic Group.
