Benthic organisms collected using sediment sampler from the SW RESEARCHER and other platforms in the Gulf of Mexico from 1978-02-03 to 1978-10-19 (NODC Accession 8100491)

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

Benthic organisms were collected using sediment sampler casts from the SW RESEARCHER in the Gulf of Mexico from 03 February 1978 to 19 October 1978. Data were submitted by the Science Application, INC. with support from the Brine Disposal project.

The F132 format contains data from field sampling or surveys of bottom dwelling marine organisms. The data provide information on species abundance, distribution, and biomass; they may have been collected by point sampling (grab or core), by tow (dredge, trawl or net), by photographic surveys, or by other methods. Cruise information such as vessel, start and end dates, investigator, and institution/agency; station numbers, positions and times; and equipment and methods are reported for each survey. Environmental data reported at each sampling site may include meteorological and sea surface conditions; surface and bottom temperature, salinity and dissolved oxygen; and sediment characteristics. Number of individual organisms and total weight of organisms is reported for each species. A text record is available for comments.
