Description Submarine canyons cut into the edge of the continental shelf and the continental slope along much of the U.S. Atlantic coast. Three canyons along the southern edge of Georges Bank (Lydonia, Oceanographer, Gilbert) were dredged and cored to study their modern sediments and the lithologies and ages of the rocks exposed on the canyon walls. As part of this study eleven cores were taken and the results of the textural analyses on the surficial sediments are contained in this data set.
