Count Component Title Abstract
1 BLM/OCS Baltimore Canyon (Mid-Atlantic) Data Set This data set contains analytical data from samples acquired from the Baltimore Canyon (Mid-Atlantic) area of the Outer Continental Shelf, U.S. East Coast, by the U.S. Geological Survey, Office of Marine Geology, Woods Hole, Mass., during the first year of environmental assessment work funded by the Bureau of Land Management (June 1975 - August 1976), on cruises of the ships Atlantis II, Advance II, Columbus Iselin, Pierce, and Gillis. The data set contains ten files. The first file ("station data") contains location and collection documentation for the subsequent files which contain the various analytical data. Data files include: baltcanyon.1.txt - collection documentation, baltcanyon.2.txt - grain size of sediments, baltcanyon.3.txt - high molecular weight hydrocarbons, baltcanyon.4.txt - hydrocarbon contaminant and intercalibration samples, baltcanyon.5.txt - trace metals, baltcanyon.6.txt - carbon content, baltcanyon.7.txt - suspended sediment (see note), baltcanyon.8.txt - suspended matter, baltcanyon.9.txt - clay mineralogy, baltcanyon.10.txt - carbon-14 dates, readme.txt - full documentation for above.

                    1 Water Depth Meters The depth from the surface of the water to the sea floor or lakebed at the location where a measurement was taken or sample collection was begun.
                    1 weight percent Percentage, by weight, of the particles from a sample or subsample that falls within a specified particle size range. The range may be expressed in milimeters or phi as inidcated in the dataset.
