Abstract:

The report gives the results of nephelometer measurements and bottom photographs taken on ROBERT D. CONRAD Cruise 16, which began at St George, Bermuda, on 10 August 1972 and ended in Piermont, New York, on 12 September 1973. During this cruise measurements were made in the North and South Atlantic oceans. The principal objectives of these measurements were to study the transport of sediment in the water column and its deposition and erosion at the sediment-water interface. The bottom photograph collection will provide information for geological and biological studies of the ocean floor.
