Metadata Updated: March 28, 2024

This file contains location and carbonate content analysis of samples taken during Cruise No. FERL01052 aboard the NOAA Ship Ferrel. These samples were taken on East and West Flower Garden Banks of the Flower Gardens Bank National Marine Sanctuary between May 28, 2002 and June 3, 2002. The information collected during this cruise is intended for a preliminary geologic interpretation of the surficial sediment distribution in order to determine sites for future sample collection. The interpretations presented in this Open File Report are subject to change with future data acquisition.
