Area of Operations: Middle Atlantic Bight, United States, North America, North Atlantic
Dates: September 27, 1975 to September 29, 1975
Chief scientist: Richard Wold
Objectives: The overall objective of this cruise was to check the operation of all the geophysical systems. Each system was to be checked out and modified where necessary until the best possible data were obtained. The acoustic characteristics of the vessel were to be checked by towing the various sensors at different speeds. When all of the systems were operating properly, data was to be obtained as part of the geophysics profiling program on Georges Bank.
Type of Activity: Geophysical testing;Geophysical testing
Information to be derived: Conditions of the geophysical system
Summary: All geophysical systems were tested and problems identified, and 440 km of usable gravity data were obtained.
