Scope and Content Notes

The CLEARANCES series is comprised of correspondence, schedules, notes, and foreign clearances for various research vessels. In some cases, research data and final cruise reports collected to fulfill post-cruise obligations are also included. The series is not limited to research projects at sea, but also contains clearance information for field work and aerial projects done in Mexico. Folder titles typically list country or countries for which a clearance was requested, name of the expedition's chief scientist, and date range of each trip.

The CRUISE REPORTS series includes disbound reports for expeditions taken in the research vessels Melville,  New Horizon,  Robert Gordon Sproul and  Roger Revelle, from 2001-2004.
