National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), 1994, National Status and Trends Program: Long Island Sound Contaminants.
This is a Vector data set. It contains the following vector data types (SDTS terminology):
Horizontal positions are specified in geographic coordinates, that is, latitude and longitude. Latitudes are given to the nearest 0.000000. Longitudes are given to the nearest 0.000000. Latitude and longitude values are specified in Decimal degrees.
The horizontal datum used is North American Datum of 1927.
The ellipsoid used is Clarke 1866.
The semi-major axis of the ellipsoid used is 6378206.400000.
The flattening of the ellipsoid used is 1/294.978698.
Sequential unique whole numbers that are automatically generated.
Coordinates defining the features.
Please review the cross reference information for the original data set credit to Wolfe, et al, 1994.
The survey objectives were to determine the spatial distribution and severity of toxicity, and to analize the relationships between toxicity and chemical contamination in the sediments.
