Abstract : This report contains charts of Cruise 21 of the CHAIN in the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea. There are 115 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. Continuous Seismic Profiling in the Tyrrhenian Sea and along the east coast of Corsica 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)
