Abstract:

The report contains charts of Cruise 266 of the ATLANTIS in the North Atlantic Ocean with special surveys on the Blake Plateau. 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 and surveys are shown on Chart I. Soundings are read at equal time intervals, usually every five 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 fathomssecond and are corrected for only depth-of-transducer. Author
