Abstract : The stress gage transducers installed aboard the M/V STEWART J. CORT were calibrated over the night of April 11, 1972. Results indicated that measured stress values should be increased by about 20%. The first voyage of the CORT took place between May 1 and May 9, and resulted in the acquisition of some springing data with a maximum value of 5910 psi peak-to-trough. Weather conditions, however, were relatively mild, and no long-period stresses were recorded. (Author)
