Abstract:

The atlas contains 74 bathymetric charts covering the Northcentral Pacific Ocean between 4 degrees S and 62 degrees N latitude and between 160 degrees E and 140 degrees W longitude. Sea floor relief is shown by means of 200 fathom contours based on a mean sound velocity of 4800 feetsecond. Where sufficient data permits, the 100 and 20 fathom contours are shown. Principal sounding lines used in compilation and analysis of the sea floor relief are indicated by a subdued grey overprint on each chart. The scale of the charts is approximately 14,500,000. Author
