Abstract

Original logbook of the Albatross covering station numbers Dr. 2817 to 2845, Hyd. 1125 to 1191, recorded 14 April to 29 July 1888. Data recorded include station number (no.), date, machine, turns, correction, depth, shot or lead, bottom, bottom temperature, number of thermometer, correction, corrected temperature, air temperature, surface temperature, drift, trawl or dredge, sounding wire readings, dredge rope readings, serial temperatures, and general remarks. Some notes on specimens caught are included. Correction tables are pasted at the front and back of the book. Localities are not listed in this volume, but the albatross was probably traveling in Pacific Ocean between the Galapagos Islands and San Francisco and may have begun heading north to Alaska (based on the history of the ship's activities).
