Grain size distribution data of seafloor sediments off Southern California

Rathburn, Anthony E
Venturelli, Ryan M
Burkett, Ashley M
These grain size distribution data and total organic carbon data represent analyses of surface sediments collected on depth transects in the Southern California Bight. Sediments were collected using an Ocean Instruments Multicorer on the R/V New Horizon (cruise NH1108). TOC analyses were conducted using a Carlo Erba CNHS analyzer at the University of Florida. Total organic carbon analyses were conducted on a Grain size analyses (0.22 to 2000 ┬Ám) were conducted at the LacCore Facility (LacCore: National Lacustrine Core Facility, Department of Earth Sciences, University of Minnesota, 310 Pillsbury Dr SE, 108 Pillsbury Hall, Minneapolis, MN 55455)
