Abstract : This manual provides the instructions, codes, and conversion tables for filling in the Bottom Sediment Data Coding Sheet No. 1. In addition to the standard analyzed or nonanalyzed core, grab, or dredge sample, any indication of bottom sediment type located on a latitude-longitude basis can be coded. The Geology Section's bottom sediment data file and other bottom sediment data are being digitized on IBM punch cards. This manual can also be used for interpreting punch cards and listings.
