|Grain Size Data from the NOAA Outer Continental Shelf Environmental Assessment Program
||These grain size data were generated as part of the Outer Continental Shelf Environmental
Assessment Program (OCSEAP), funded by NOAA. 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 in this set may contain errors.
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.
