|Southwest Florida Shelf Ecosystems Analysis Study|
|The Southwest Florida Shelf Ecosystems Analysis Study produced grain size analyses in the historic 073 format for 299 sea floor samples collected from October 25, 1980 to February 15, 1982 by the Venture during cruises ECO0-3 in the Southwest Florida Continental Shelf in the Gulf of Mexico. 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.|
