Abstract : This report contains charts of Cruise 43 of the CHAIN in the North Atlantic Ocean - Mediterranean Sea - Red Sea and Indian Ocean. There are 150 charts plotted on a Mercator Projection (Scale 1 degree longitude equals 4 inches) showing the track of the entire cruise. All types of observations made during the cruise are noted by suitable symbols or legends and are shown on Index Charts. There are 42 pages showing continuous daily observations, including types of information gathered at each of the 115 stations. 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)
