Description This data layer (PAC_PRS.txt) is one of five point coverages of known sediment samples, inspections, and probes from the usSEABED data collection for the U.S. Pacific continental margin integrated using the dbSEABED software system. This data layer represents the parsed (PRS) output of the dbSEABED mining software. It contains the numeric results parsed from text-based descriptions held in the data resource files (DRF). Because it relies on descriptions, the PRS data are less precise than the extracted data (PAC_EXT), but may include information on outsized elements and consolidation that are often not in lab-analyzed data. This file contains the same data fields as the extracted (PAC_EXT) and calculated (PAC_CLC) data files, and the three files may be combined. [More]
