Access Constraints None. The field data contained in this database have been compiled, standardized and verified to the original records.
Use Constraints The field data contained in the database have not been reviewed for publication
and, therefore, may contain inconsistencies or errors. The field measurements (such as
salinity and temperature) have been made on a variety of instruments over the years. Every
effort has been made to calibrate and standardize the instruments and check the data,
however, the field data should be considered preliminary. Also, taxonomic names may not
represent the most up to date usage, but are internally consistent.
