Abstract : This report contains charts of Cruise 39 of the CHAIN in Northwest Atlantic Ocean. There are 25 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. Charts show special observations on the Abyssal Hills southeast of Bermuda. Bathymetry during surveys is 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 often as space permits. (Author)
