Count Component Title Abstract
1 US Geological Survey BLM/OCS Baltimore Canyon (Mid-Atlantic) Sediment Analyses (Samples collected 1 July 1975 to 30 June 1976) 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 1979-03-31T00:00:00 From 1975 through the 1980s, most sediment data collected as part of offshore environmental baseline and/or habitat studies were part of a suite of measurements sent to NODC or NODC liasons. Many sediment analyses and descriptions, however, were maintained by NODC as benthic habitat data, and some additional sediment data were duplicated between the NODC and NGDC archives.
