Abstract:

This report contains charts of cruise 55 of CHAIN in the North Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea. There are 51 charts plotted on a Mercator Projection scale 1 degree longitude equals 4 inches showing the track of the entire cruise. All types of observations made during the cruise are noted by suitable symbols or legends along the ships track. The location of special observations are shown on Chart I. Soundings are read at equal time intervals, usually every ten minutes, and at each break in slope. They are written along the ships track as often as space permits. All soundings are based on a sound velocity of 800 fathomssec. and are corrected only for depth-of-transducer. Author
