Count Component Title Abstract
1 The MAFLA (Mississippi, Alabama, Florida) Study, Grain Size Analyses The MAFLA (Mississippi, Alabama, Florida) Study was funded by NOAA as part of the Outer Continental Shelf Program. Dr. L.J. Doyle produced grain size analyses in the historic 073 format for 2,168 sea floor samples collected on multiple cruises (MAFLA cruises 2, 10, 11, 29, 39, 14, 21, and MAFLA DM1 and DM2) conducted in the Gulf of Mexico from May 16, 1974 through February 20, 1978. Data include collecting institution, ship, cruise, sample id, latitude/longitude, date of collection, water depth, sampling device, method of analysis, sample weight, sampled interval, raw weight percentages of sediment, within a given phi range. Some samples also have percentages of total gravel, sand, silt, clay, and statistical measurements such as mean, median, skewness, kurtosis, and standard deviation of grain size. These data are part of the larger NGDC digital grain size database.

                1 Latitude Distance measured north or south from the equator. Distance north is positive, distance south is negative.
                1 Longitude Longitude is measured from the Prime Meridian (which is the north/south line that runs through Greenwich, England), values measured east are positive and values measured west are negative.
                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.
