|GYRE97-6||R/V GYRE 1997, leg 6|
This GIS data layer contains a summary of the locations, depths, and lengths of the cores collected aboard the R/V GYRE cruise from 5-25 April 1997 (USGS, Woods Hole Field Activity 97006). The cores were collected from the Louisiana Continental Slope in the Gulf of Mexico along a feature known as Bryant Canyon. 38 cores were collected using either a piston or gravity corer, and cores ranged form 345-470 cm in length. Some of the results have been published by Twichell et al. (2000).
