Seabed sediments (grain size), detailed
Definition: The data set shows the grain size composition in the upper part of the seabed sediments (upper 0-50 cm of the seabed). The attribute table for the data set provides information on the different grain size classes and which term is used based on the content of different fractions in sediments. Based on information about grain size distribution, other topics can be further developed, such as sedimentation environment, bottom stream data, information on hard and soft bottoms, etc.
