        abstract:  This data set contains analytical data from samples acquired from the Northwestern Gulf of Mexico area under contract to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) during 1978-1979. Individual contractors included researchers from Rice University, Moody College, and Texas A and M University. Most samples were taken from the R/V Gus III. The project was known as the "Buccaneer Oil Field" project. Caution: numerous errors found in this data set. LIST OF FILES: readme.txt (collection documentation), 03495004.cly.txt (clay mineralogy), 03495004.siz.txt (sediment size analysis), 03495004.sed.txt (surficial sediment), 03495004.tss.txt (trapped suspended sediment ), 03495004.sup.txt (suspended particulates).

            result: (unknown)
        report:  (DQ_QuantitativeAttributeAccuracy)
            nameOfMeasure:  Reliability
            measureDescription:  Numerous errors were found in this data set when total weight percentages of grain size analyses were checked, so the grain size analyses were not added to the historic NGDC Seafloor Sediment Grain Size Database and are only available in their original form.
            evaluationMethodDescription:  Quality control was performed by the originator. NGDC performed basic out-of-range location testing and checked for gross errors in totals of weight percentage of grain size analyses.
            result: (unknown)
        lineage:  (LI_Lineage)
            statement:  These data were contributed by the originator to NOAA's former National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC) and may be part of a larger compilation archived as oceanographic data by NCEI. Data are available in their original form. Due to errors found during processing, the grain size data were not processed to the 073 format and are not included in the historic NGDC Seafloor Sediment Grain Size Database. Data were contributed on nine track magnetic tape, EBCDIC form, 80 character records blocked to 5120 characters/block. There were 2,553 total records. Positions were not adequate for processing, NODC was notified of problems. Tape contents: 14 samples/25 records type 02,03 sediment size analysis; 84 samples/1102 records type 01, surficial sediments; 14 samples/132 records type 04, clay mineralogy; 3 samples/32 records type 01 trapped suspended sediment; 205 samples/1220 records type 01, suspended particulates.
            processStep:  (LI_ProcessStep)
                description:  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. NODC data managers, primarily Francis Mitchel, then sent the sediment-related data (e.g., physical properties, composition, geochemstry, mineralogy) to the former NGDC as the authoritative archive and distribution point for sediment data. 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.
