Description The data in this set are part of the "Ocean Pulse" benthic studies that were conducted on the U.S. northeast shelf by the National Marine Fisheries Service. This data set represents only those data collected as part of this program during 1981-1982 and off New England. Those stations occupied in the New York Bight are not included. Although chemical analyses (organic carbon and total Kjeldahl nitrogen) were also conducted, only textural descriptions are included here.
