Abstract : This report contains charts of Cruise 17 of the CHAIN in the Atlantic Ocean, Romanche Trench and Mid-Atlantic Ridge. There are 89 charts (approx. scale 1:972,600) 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. Bathymetry during 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 often as space permits. (Author)
