Abstract : There are 16 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. Soundings are read at either equal time intervals or at each break in the slope. They are written along the ship's track as often as space permits. (Author)
