Title: SIO 76-3, Sediment Descriptions from the Studies of East Asia Tectonics and Resources (SEATAR) Program
Dataset Publication Date: 1977-01-20
Abstract: The SEATAR files were compiled by the Scripps Institution of Oceanography with funds from IDOE/NSF, as part of the SIO world sediment data bank, under the direction of Jane Frazer and Mary Fisk. Data were abstracted from published sources through 1976 and include descriptions of 5919 grabs/dredges and 2249 cores from the area 15 degrees south to 45 degrees north, 90 degrees to 150 degrees east. The Indian Ocean, North Pacific Ocean, South China Sea, Philippine Sea, Inland Sea, Eastern China Sea, Yellow Sea, Japan Sea, East Indian Archipelago, Coral Sea, Solomon Sea, and Bismarck Seas are included. The files include station information, bibliographic references, and descriptive information including lithology, percent CaCO3, constituents by grain size, organic material/fossils, ages, other features, and minerals. Additional SEATAR data in other formats are also available through NGDC. Digital SEATAR sediment files are available for direct download from NGDC's Web site. MGGD15995014. Data Announcement 81-MGG-04.
