NOTE: PLEASE CITE ORIGINAL REFERENCE WHEN USING THESE DATA


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 NGDC digital grain size database.
