Abstract : This report contains charts of Cruise 47 of CHAIN in the North Atlantic Ocean. There are 17 charts plotted on a Mercator Projection (scale 1 degree Longitude equals 4 inches) showing the track of the entire cruise except for the special experiment, northwest of Bermuda. All types of observations made during the cruise are noted by suitable symbols or legends and are shown on Index Charts. There are 6 pages showing continuous daily observations, including types of information gathered at each of the 36 stations. Included also in this report is a station list giving times, depths, and positions. A chart shows special observations made in the area northwest of Bermuda. 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)
