James, Kono, Masaru, Hsin Yi Ling, McKenzie, Judith, Morgan, Jason, Takayama, Toshiaki, Initial reports of the Deep Sea Drilling Project covering Leg 55 of the cruises of the drilling vessel Glomar Challenger, Honolulu, Hawaii to Yokohama, Japan; July-September 1977, 55, 789-800, georefid:1981-027032

Geophysical profiles covering over 7600 nautical miles were obtained on the fifty-fifth cruise of the Glomar Challenger between 14 July and 5 August 1977. Twelve-kHz bathymetric, air-gun seismic reflection, and magnetic measurements are the principal data types, although some 3.5-kHz profiles were obtained, mostly from the Emperor Seamounts. The data were collected in the North Pacific, along four major transects: (1) a western track between the Murray and Molokai fracture zones, from Long Beach to Honolulu; (2) a northwest track from Honolulu across the Hess Rise to the Emperor Seamounts; (3) a northeast-southwest track from the Emperor Seamounts across the Emperor through and Aleutian Trench to Adak and back; and (4) a western track from the Emperor Seamounts to Yokohama.
