BHL Field Notes Project

The BHL Field Notes Project is a collaborative project funded by the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR). It provides open access to field notes from institutions throughout the United States.

Building on the work of the Smithsonian Field Book Project, the BHL Field Notes Project aims not only to provide general access to this material, but to reunite fragmented collections through institutional collaboration. Doing so will provide a more complete picture of the expeditions, discoveries, and collections the scientists and institutions were a part of.

Participating Institutions:
  • American Museum of Natural History
  • Field Museum of Natural History Library
  • Harvard University Botany Libraries
  • Harvard University, Museum of Comparative Zoology, Ernst Mayr Library
  • Internet Archive

This folder contains maps, graphs, and tables compiling hydrographic data from Smithsonian Cruise 90, collected in July 1964. Data were collected on the Pacific Ocean to the north, south, and west of Johnston Atoll, within the area approximately bounded by 10° to 22° N and 168° to 174° W. Individual hand-drawn maps plot BT stations, surface salinity (‰), corrected surface temp. (°C), 20° isotherm depth (meters), depth of the mixed layer, bucket temp. (°C) and bucket salinity (‰)....

This volume is a field journal of fish surveys off of islands of the Marshall Islands. Notes were recorded for drums 1 through 9 from 15 October to 11 November 1964. The numbered drums may be containers used to store fish collected at each locality. The notes for most drums refer to fish poisoned inside of lagoons, so it appears that a piscicide was used for sampling. Information recorded for each drum includes locality, date, and, for most drums, a description of where fish were poisoned,...
