The report contains charts of Cruise 223 of the ATLANTIS and charts of Cruise 140 of the BEAR in the North Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea. There are 112 charts plotted on a Mercator Projection scale 1 degree longitude equals 4 inches showing the track of both ships. All types of observations made during the cruises are noted by suitable symbols or legends along the ship track. 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
