Description

Occurrence data for benthic fauna collected during the 2018 research cruise aboard the NOAA Ship Bell M. Shimada off the western U.S. coast.

Data Records

The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 37 records.

1 extension data tables also exist. An extension record supplies extra information about a core record. The number of records in each extension data table is illustrated below.

Project Data

These data were collected as part of the on-going Expanding Pacific Research and Exploration of Submerged Systems (EXPRESS) project, a multi-year, multi-institution cooperative research campaign in deep sea areas of California, Oregon, and Washington, including the continental shelf and slope. EXPRESS data and information are intended to guide wise use of living marine resources and habitats, inform ocean energy and mineral resource decisions, and improve offshore hazard assessments. The ultimate goal of EXPRESS is to develop comprehensive digital elevation models, habitat maps, and geologic maps, which are needed to address important issues associated with marine spatial planning, ecosystem assessments, geohazards, and the impact of offshore infrastructure development on sensitive ecosystems. This particular NOAA cruise focused on deep-sea corals, sponges, and associated habitats.
