Abstract : The report contains charts of Cruise 260 of the ATLANTIS in the North Atlantic Ocean. There are 12 charts plotted on a Mercator Projection (Longitude scale at the Equator 1:1,045,288, Latitude scale 1:1, 095, 679) showing the track of the entire cruise except for special surveys. All types of observations made during the cruise are noted by suitable symbols or legends along the ship's track. The location of special surveys are shown. Soundings are read at equal time intervals, usually every five minutes and at each break in slope. They are written along the ship's track as space permits. (Author)
