Abstract : CHAIN Cruise 38 was the last of a series of cruises made out of Woods Hole in 1963 for the purpose of investigating the area of the THRESHER sinking. During the twelve days of the cruise a radioacoustic system as a navigational aid was tested and proved feasible, but found in need of further practical development. Fifteen photographic and electric-potential profiles and a few seismic and acoustic measurements of the bottom were made. Only a small amount of debris from THRESHER was photographed. This report contains a narrative of the cruise, tabulations of the seismic and acoustic stations, and a selection of bottom photographs. (Author)
