Abstract

The folder documents the field work of William Osman relating to benthic marine life, undated. The loose sheets list several types of information: some tables list station number, X and Y coordinates, sextant readings and bottom type; another lists diver, depth, time in, time out, and length of time (minutes); most sheets list roll number (1 to 120), frame number, plate number, size, and remarks. Remarks appear to be information about camera settings, conditions, or flora and fauna present.
