Abstract : During February and March of 1962, a marine magnetic and bathymetric survey of the Puerto Rico Trench and Outer Ridge was conducted. Data were obtained along 7,600 nautical miles of track during these operations aboard USS PREVAIL (AGS-20). The survey revealed that two major structural trends intersect in this area. One trend is related to the structure of the Bahama Islands and the second is related to the Puerto Rico Trench. (Author)
