Abstract : The atlas contains 49 bathymetric charts covering the Northwest Pacific Ocean between 4 degrees S and 60 degrees N latitude and between 100E and 160 degrees E longitude. Sea floor relief is shown by means of 200 fathom contours and spot depths based on a mean sound velocity of 4800 ft/sec. Magenta line and shade overprints show the principal survey tracks and charts used in compilation and analysis of the charts. The scale of the charts is approximately 1:4,500,000 and the charts are reductions of charts prepared at a scale of 1:1,000,000. (Author)
