Abstract : Total magnetic intensity and bathymetric data collected on simultaneous North Atlantic crossings. Three ships, USNS BOWDITCH, USNS DUTTON, and USNS MICHELSON participated in the survey operations are presented. These ships were with nuclear resonance magnetometers and precision depth recorders. A combined total of approximately 17,200 miles of track was surveyed. The data presentation is in profile form and is divided into two parts. Part I presents the data from the westbound crossing between the Norwegian Sea and New York, and Part II presents the data from the eastbound crossing. (Author)
