The report contains charts of YAMACRAW Cruise Nos. 3 and 6 in the North Atlantic Ocean. There are 25 Cruise No. 3 and 8 Cruise No. 6 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 Charts I and II Cruise No. 3 and Chart I Cruise No. 6. 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
