Abstract

Original logbook of the Albatross covering station numbers Dr 3452-3476, Hyd 2647, recorded 29 August 1891 to 2 October 1891 and 18 April 1892. 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 (type and quantities of fish or other marine life such as urchins, sea stars, brachiopods, cnidaria, and mollusks). Localities are not listed in this volume, but the albatross was known to be in the Strait of Juan de Fuca, then traveling back and forth between San Francisco and the Hawaiian Islands (based on the history of the ship's activities).
