u271gm.m77t - MGD77 data file for Geophysical data from field activity U-2-71-GM in East Margin Yucatan Peninsula from 06/23/1971 to 07/08/1971

Metadata Updated: November 12, 2020

Single-beam, bathymetry, gravity, and magnetic data along with transit satellite navigation data was collected as part of the U.S. Geological Survey cruise U271GM. in East Margin Yucatan Peninsula from 06/23/1971 to 07/08/1971, http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/u/u271gm/html/u-2-71-gm.meta.html These data are reformatted from space-delimited ASCII text files located in the Coastal and Marine Geology Program (CMGP) InfoBank field activity catalog at http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/u/u271gm/html/u-2-71-gm.bath.html http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/u/u271gm/html/u-2-71-gm.grav.html and http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/u/u271gm/html/u-2-71-gm.mag.html into MGD77T format provided by the NOAA's National Geophysical Data Center(NGDC). The MGD77T format includes a header (documentation) file (.h77t) and a data file (.m77t). More information regarding this format can be found in the publication listed in the Cross_reference section of this metadata file.
