Count Component Title Abstract
1 Grain Size Data from the NOAA Outer Continental Shelf Environmental Assessment Program (OCSEAP) This data set contains grain size data from samples acquired under the NOAA Outer Continental Shelf Environmental Assessment Program (OCSEAP) from the Outer Continental Shelf around Alaska. Data were contributed by the University of Alaska, the University of South Carolina, the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, and the US Geological Survey with funding from NOAA. Data fields 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 Seafloor Sediment Grain Size Database (doi:10.7289/V5G44N6W).

                        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.

                        1 1980-12-31T00:00:00 OCSEAP sediment data contributed by the originator to the OCSEAP Data Coordinator at NOAA's former NODC are part of a larger compilation archived as oceanographic data. Because some OCSEAP data were not forwarded to the former NGDC, users may want to search the oceanographic archive in order to locate all OCSEAP sediment data.
