Abstract:
Seafloor bottom type interpretation of the West Flower Garden Bank portion of the Flower Garden Banks NMS based on sediment samples and the mulitbeam backscatter and bathymetry. (Polygon Shapefile)
Purpose:
Seabottom type interpretation based on sediment samples and the mulitbeam backscatter and bathymetry provide detailed as well as general information about the composition and ruggedness of the seafloor.

Process_Description:
Edits to the metadata were made to fix any errors that MP v 2.9.36 flagged. This is necessary to enable the metadata to be successfully harvested for various data catalogs. In some cases, this meant adding text "Information unavailable" or "Information unavailable from original metadata" for those required fields that were left blank. Other minor edits were probably performed (title, publisher, publication place, etc.). Modified the title to include more information. Attempted to modify http to https where appropriate. The metadata structure had format issues that were fixed. The source information was incomplete and had to be modified to meet the standard. Added digital transfer information and a link to the data in the distribution section. Attributes were incompletely defined and had to be modified to meet the standard. The metadata date (but not the metadata creator) was edited to reflect the date of these changes. The metadata available from a harvester may supersede metadata bundled within a download file. Compare the metadata dates to determine which metadata file is most recent.
