The NGDC Seafloor Sediment Geotechnical Database
NGDC Seafloor Sediment Geotechnical Properties Database sample locations
The NGDC Seafloor Sediment Geotechnical Properties Database contains test engineering properties data coded by students at NGDC from primarily U.S. Naval Oceanographic Office laboratory reports, but also from data reports generated by NOAA's Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory (AOML). These files consist of very few reports coded at NGDC into the historic "074" format which was then incorporated into the historic "073" digital format for physical properties of sediments. Coding was a test case, and full scale development of the data file was never undertaken.
