Core Descriptions, Grain Size, and Photos

Core data provided in this report, including core descriptions (logs), grain-size data, and photographs can be viewed for individual cores by clicking the core location on the maps below (figs. 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10), or they can be downloaded together as a zipped file of Adobe Acrobat® Portable Document Format (.pdf) files from the data downloads table below. Map documents and shapefiles provided in this report were created in Esri ArcGIS 10.1 and can be found individually or together in the GIS Project folder. On the core description logs, the percent sand content is a visual estimation, not from grain-size analysis results.

Core logs are provided in Portable Document Format (PDF) and can be viewed using the free software Adobe Acrobat Reader (http://www.adobe.com/products/reader.html). The sample location tables and grain-size spreadsheets were created in Microsoft Excel 2010 (http://office.microsoft.com/) and can be opened using Microsoft Excel 2007 or higher. The GIS map documents and shapefiles provided in the data table were created using Esri ArcGIS version 10.1 and can be opened using Esri ArcGIS version 10.0 or higher; these data may also be viewed using the free GIS viewer ArcGIS Explorer (http://www.esri.com/software/arcgis/explorer).

Map showing Core Locations split into subareas
Figure 6. Core sites were assigned subareas for easy reference. Each subarea contains core sites displayed in separate maps according to the proximity of the nearest island. This was done in order to clearly access core site location data. The subareas are displayed below in figures 7, 8, and 9.
