Summary
Abstract: Benthic organisms data were collected using sediment sampler and net casts BELLOWS and other platforms in the Gulf of Mexico from 16 May 1974 to 20 February 1978. Data were collected and submitted by Dr. William Sackett of Texas University with support from the Outer Continental Shelf project.The data are from field sampling or surveys of bottom dwelling marine organisms in F132 format.

Quality LOGICAL CONSISTENCY REPORT: The position of observations were plotted on a map to verify gross accuracy of the location information. The years of the collection date were plotted in a histogram to verify the gross accuracy of the date and time stamp for observations. The extracted data set in OBIS-USA format was reviewed by multiple people at NODC and OBIS-USA.
