Abstract : Lamont-Doherty Geological Observatory of Columbia University, provided and operated the Research Vessel ROBERT D. CONRAD (AGOR-3) in support of Dr. Henry Fleming's three cruises to investigate certain features of the Brazil Margin and Mid-Atlantic Ridge under Project CENTRATLAN. Project CENTRATLAN is a cooperative U.S. - Brazilian effort in studying geotectonic processes in the South Atlantic Ocean. It is a multiyear program which has been ongoing since 1980. The purpose of these investigations was to do detailed shipboard investigations of specific problems revealed by earlier magnetic and gravity surveyed overflights. The cruise was successful.
