Detailed summary of geologic dives made by the submersible ALVIN in the Gulf of Maine. Report includes sampling procedures followed by the submersible, a listing and areal distribution of the samples collected, a comparison of the submersible to other sampling techniques, and the relationship of individual pilots to sampling success. Each dive is described in detail including representative bottom photographs and artist's concepts of outcrop regions.
