Abstract : The volume presents a composite of bottom photography, velocity profile, and sediment core data derived from oceanographic data stations in MGS Task Area 5. This Task Area includes an area lying between 40 and 32 degrees N, and approximately from the Portuguese and Moroccan coastal areas to 32 deg. W in the north and to 37 deg. W in the south. The most significant conclusion from the data presented is considered to be the close agreement between the Nansen cast and the velocimeter profile methods of determining velocity. The principle geological and geophysical features of the region are described in AD-650 860, and a summary of field operations is given in AD-650 862.
