Summary
Abstract: The Equatorial Pacific Process Study (EQPAC) was conducted along 140 deg W
longitude during 1992.

Four cruises took place: February 3 - March 9, March 19 - April 15,
August 5 - September 18, and September 24 - October 21. A fifth benthic
cruise and sediment trap legs were added. During the first cruise
(TT007), 15 stations ... View entire text
