A diagram of the old wiredrag system as developed by Nicholas Heck, Jean Hawley, and others in the U. S. Coast and Geodetic Survey. Prior to the development of sidescan sonar, this was the only method to find protrusions from the bottom that occurred between sounding lines. This diagram was published in the "Military Engineer", 1924, p. 228.

A diagram of the "new"wiredrag system as operated off the NOAA Ships RUDE and HECK in 1986. Little change in design or concept had occurred between 1924 and 1986.

A bottom temperature map published in "Three Cruises of the Blake", Alexander Agassiz, 1888. p. 218. The majority of these temperatures were obtained by the CHALLENGER Expedition. The cold pool in the southwest Atlantic Ocean is indicative of no communication between the southwest and southeast Atlantic basins as the result of an obstruction - the Mid-Atlantic Ridge.

A bottom sediment map. Published in "Three Cruises of the Blake", Alexander Agassiz, 1888. P. 286. The majority of the sediment samples in this map were obtained as the result of Coast Survey expeditions between the 1840's and 1880's. Library Call Number QH93.A26 1888 v.1.

Sounding technique used by Sir James Clark Ross in obtaining first modern deep sea sounding on January 3, 1840 at Latitude 27 26 S and Longitude 17 29 W. The observed depth was 2,425 fathoms. On January 22, 1968, the ESSA Ship DISCOVERER sounded at the same location with a modern echo-sounder and measured 2312 fathoms, less than a 5 per cent error for Ross's observation.
