Abstract:

In September and October 1969, USNS J. W. Gibbs T-AGOR 1 participated in the NEAT I Northeast Atlantic Test I acoustic experiment. Historical data were evaluated prior to the experiment and compared to the in- situ measurements made by Gibbs. Included in these measurements were bathymetry, camera, core and dredge stations, and water-column measurements including XBTs, Nansen casts, and velocimeter casts. The in-situ water-column measurements were used to confirm or deny the presence of the sound velocity double minimum that is present in much of the NEAT I study area. Measurements were made both while at anchor and in transit to and from the anchor sites.
