BENTHIC SPECIES and Other Data from GILLISS and Other Platforms From NW Atlantic (limit-40 W) and Others from 19751027 to 19760902 (NODC Accession 7700472)

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

Microbenthic data was collected by the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS) as part of the BLM/OCS Mid (NE) Atlantic program. The data were collected from the R/V W. PIERCE from February to March 1976. The data was collected to study the Benthic organisms. Benthic species were counted and benthic taxa were identified. These data were submitted by Dr. Gerald L. Engel. The measurements included station depth; surface and sediment temperature in degrees centigrade; wind speed and direction; wave/swell height and direction; instrumentation; penetration depth; gear type; sediment core dimensions (width and penetration depth in centimeters); depth of sediment corer penetration; cloud cover and turbidity. The documentation includes a detailed record format. Data were originally filed in a VIMS format tape has been converted into current NODC data storage format.
