Abstract : The report covers operations and results obtained for the period January 1 through December 31, 1970 between the Hawaii Institute of Geophysics, University of Hawaii and the Ocean Science and Technology Branch of the Office of Naval Research. The report is subdivided on the basis of the three tasks covered by subject contract with a separate report for each task prepared by the respective principal investigators. The report for Task 2 also includes the cruise reports for Legs 1A, 1B, 2, and 3 of the 1970 cruise of the R/V MAHI which was at sea nine months and did not return to Honolulu until the middle of December. This section of the progress report also contains an appendix giving abstracts of papers in preparation under this task. The reporting period was extended to 12 months (to December 30, 1970) in order to include all field operations done on the 1970 cruise of the R/V MAHI. The operational areas covered by the cruise reports are the Line Islands Ridge, the Phoenix Islands, and the Fiji Plateau - New Hebrides area to Rabaul, New Guinea on to Guam. (Author)
