Sediments of Block Island Sound acquired in 1966 (SAVARD66 shapefile)

Metadata Updated: October 28, 2023

A total of 84 surficial sediments samples were collected aboard two cruises from Block Island Sound as part of a Master's Thesis completed at the University of Rhode Island. Sampling was performed with a pipe dredge for most of the samples; a van veen grab was used for the remaining smaples. The data presented in this source show the sediments distribution and elucidate the sedimentary environments and processes on this portion of the continental shelf.
