    Abstract -- Acknowledgements -- Executive summary -- Introduction -- Cetacean surveys -- Environmental data surveys.

    "The purpose of this study is to determine the seasonal and geographic distribution and movements of cetaceans in areas potentially affected by future oil and gas activities along the continental slope in the north-central and western Gulf of Mexico... In addition to conducting aerial and shipboard visual surveys, this program... has collected hydrographic data in situ and by remote sensing to characterize the preferred habitats of cetaceans in the study area... [This] program is a 3.25 year project which commenced on October 1, 1991... This interim report summarizes project accomplishments and results for the first four aerial and six shipboard surveys..., two of the regularly scheduled Ichthyoplankton/Marine Mammal survey cruises conducted by the National Marine Fisheries Service, and three sperm whale tagging cruises. When completed, this study will help the MMS to assess the potential effects of deepwater exploration and production on marine mammals in the Gulf of Mexico."--p.v.
