Data Set Credit:
The file was begun by the Marine Geology and Geophysics group of the National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC) in the early 1970s and transferred to NGDC when the group moved to Boulder, Colorado.
Many additional data sets available through NGDC contain seafloor sediment data that are not included in this database; some are in paper reports, other data are in diverse formats. For a more complete search of seafloor sediment data available from NGDC, please search the marine geology inventory.
