Abstract:

The SIO Geological Data Center coordinates underway data collection processes the digital navigation, depth and magnetics and produces cruises reports and computer generated plots for archiving and distribution. The data center also archives, microfilms, and indexes seismic profiler airgun, echosounder and magnetometer records. Gravity data are archived and processed separately. Between 1976 when the last general index report was issued and December 1977, the cutoff data for this report, 33 legs of current Scripps cruises and 13 legs of Glomar Challenger Deepsea Drilling Project have been processed by the data center. Navigation, but no depth and magnetics, has also been processed for the early legs 4 through 12 of the Challenger. Navigation 193,734 miles magnetics 131,515 miles, and depth 131,862 miles.
