SUMMARY

This data set contains grain size data from samples acquired from the Ecological Investigation of Petroleum Production Platforms in the Central Gulf of Mexico Project, part of the BLM/OCS program funded by NOAA and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM).

The data set consists of four parts: 1) MGG23045001, 488 samples from Sea Transporter cruise I, May 22 - June 1, 1978, 2) MGG23045002, 245 samples from Sea Transporter cruise IIC September 20-22, 1978, 3) MGG23045003, 360 samples from Sea Transporter cruise III January 6-15, 1979, and 4) MGG23055001, 561 samples from the T-Kip IV, cruise IIA August 20-27, 1978.

Grain size data were contributed in the historic 073 format. These data were incorporated into the current Seafloor sediment digital grain size database.
