Abstract : Approximately 5,250 km. (2,835 nautical miles) of magnetic and bathymetric data were recorded by the USNS CHARLES H. DAVIS (T-AGOR 5) between San Diego, California and the equator. The DAVIS crossed several distinct geologic provinces and in several areas a relationship between topography and magnetic data is evident. The magnetic data in other areas indicates the location of the crest of the East Pacific rise is father to the south and that the fault zone marked by the Cocos Ridge as much wider than previously theorized.
