Grain Size Data from the Brine Disposal Program, Gulf of Mexico

Metadata Updated: February 3, 2017

These data are part of the Brine Disposal Program funded by NOAA in the US Gulf of Mexico, compiled by NOAA/CEAS and partially conducted by R. W. Hann of Texas A and M University. Grain size analyses conducted on 230 grabs by Texas A and M University were added to the historic NGDC Seafloor Sediment Grain Size Database from multiple cruises of the Lady Gloria conducted during October of 1982. Data include collecting institution, ship, cruise, sample id, latitude/longitude, date of collection, water depth, sampling device, method of analysis, sample weight, sampled interval, raw weight percentages of sediment, within a given phi range. Some samples also have percentages of total gravel, sand, silt, clay, and statistical measurements such as mean, median, skewness, kurtosis, and standard deviation of grain size. Additional data submitted for the Brine Disposal Program by Science Applications, Inc. (SAI) and collected during multiple cruises of the Texas Star in September of 1977, the Dixie Isle in March of 198, and the Gus III from October 1978-May of 1979 were not added to the database due to errors.
