PacMARS Surface Sediment Parameters (1970-2012)


This dataset contains summary measurements of surface sediment collected at each station for the identified cruise, with parameters (sediment grain size: <=0 phi, 1 phi, 2 phi, 3 phi, 4 phi, and >=5 phi, 1-4 phi, modal phi size, total organic carbon (TOC), total organic nitrogen (TON), C/N, del-13 carbon (per mil), and del-15 nitrogen (per mil)). This dataset is part of the Pacific Marine Arctic Regional Synthesis (PacMARS) Project.
