National Marine Fisheries Service Grain Size Data from the Baltimore Canyon Trough
browse graphicGrain size analyses produced by Robert Reid of the NOAA National Marine Fisheries Service for the NOAA/BLM Outer Continental Shelf Mid-Atlantic Project, Baltimore Canyon Trough Area. Grain size analyses were originally contributed in the historic NODC 003 format for 113 sea floor samples collected from May 22-27, 1974 by the Mt. Mitchell on cruise BC7401. 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.
