This report presents the operational chronology and representative photographic data, including benthic color plates, from an oceanographic investigation near the Farallon Islands, off the California coast. The purpose of this operation was to determine the feasibility of using a submersible to locate and investigate a site used in the early 1950's for disposal of radioactive wastes and determine the conditions of the containers, primarily 55-gallon drums. The operation employed the U.S Navy's Cable-Controlled Underwater Recovery Vehicle (CURV III). (Color illustrations reproduced in black and white)
