browse graphic These data are part of the Brine Disposal Program funded by NOAA in the US Gulf of Mexico, conducted by R. W. Hann of Texas A and M University. Data in the report represent grain size analyses conducted by TAMU for 230 grabs collected by multiple cruises of the Lady Gloria in the Gulf of Mexico from October 2 - 16, 1982.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.
