Abstract : This report contains charts of Cruise 242 of the ATLANTIS in the Atlantic Ocean, Mediterranean Sea, Red Sea, and Indian Ocean. There are 100 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 on charts. 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)
