Abstract : This report contains charts of Cruise 34 of the CHAIN in the North Atlantic Ocean. There are 43 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 in the Puerto-Rico Trench, North Wall, and Outer Ridge. Bathymetry during the survey is shown on the 43 small charts enclosed. 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)
