Abstract : Physical and geoacoustic property data were collected during the Key West Campaign as a part of the Coastal Benthic Boundary Layer research program. The carbonate sediments of the western Florida Keys represent an important site in which to study the effects of environmental processes on sediment properties. In this report, results on these sediments from five Naval Research Laboratory scientists are presented. The data were collected from carbonate sands and sand-silt-clay sediments at the Marquesas Keys, Rebecca Shoal, and the Dry Tortugas during cruises in 1994 and 1995. Separate subsections for methodology and results from each author are presented along with core and instrument deployment maps.
