Seabed sediments (grain size), regional
Definition: This dataset contains the grain size composition of seabed sediments upper part (top 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 grain sizes 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.
