usSEABED: Offshore Surficial-Sediment Database for Samples Collected within the United States Exclusive Economic Zone
Since the second half of the 20th century, there has been an increase in scientific interest, research effort, and information gathered on the geologic sedimentary character of the continental margins of the United States. Data and information from thousands of sources have increased our scientific understanding of the geologic origins of the margin surface but rarely have those data been combined into a unified database. Initially, usSEABED was created by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation ...
Attendee Survey Results from the April and May 2020 Gulf Islands National Seashore Workshop
In early 2020, scientists gathered to advance sediment budget modeling efforts by conducting a “Needs Assessment Workshop” for the Gulf Island National Seashore (GINS) to understand the coastal processes affecting island resiliency. The “Gulf Islands Sediment Budget Needs Assessment Workshop” was held, virtually, April 23–24 and May 27–28, 2020. The workshop series was organized by researchers from North Carolina State University in collaboration with National Park Service (NPS) and U.S. ...
