The Ocean Archive System searches our original datasets as they were submitted to us, not individual points or profiles. If you want to search and retrieve ocean profiles in a common format, or objectively analyzed fields, your better option may be to use one of our project applications. See: Access Data

|Title:||Intertidal organism and habitat data as part of Outer Continental Shelf Environmental Assessment Program (OCSEAP) from 07 July 1977 to 26 August 1978 (NODC Accession 8000003)|
|Abstract:||Intertidal organism and habitat data were collected from 07 July 1977 to 26 August 1978. Data were collected by Western Washington University (WWU) as part of Outer Continental Shelf Environmental Assessment Program (OCSEAP). Data were processed by NODC to NODC standard F030 Intertidal Organism and Habitat format. Full format description is available from NODC at www.nodc.noaa.gov/General/NODC-Archive/f030.html. An analog file for this accession is available from NODC user services.
The F030 format is used for data from field sampling of marine organisms in intertidal or subtidal habitats. The data are collected to provide information about species abundance and distribution. Data from each observation may include: cruise and station information such as vessel name, senior scientist, position, date, and time; environmental conditions such as surface temperature and salinity, wind speed and direction, and sea state; sediment and habitat descriptors; and species identification and organism counts and measurements. Data may be reported for either individual or composite samples. A text record is available for reporting comments.

|Supplementary information:||Note: Metadata for this accession were extracted from a legacy database
maintained by the U.S. National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC). The
design of the database did not exactly reflect the FGDC Content
Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM).
Principal Investigator (PI) and organization contact information
accurately represents all available information from the legacy database
at the time that this description was created. However, proper
attribution of a PI to a specific institution or the role (submitting or
collecting) taken by an institution may not be correct due to inexact
mapping between fields in the legacy database and the CSDGM. Due to this
uncertainty, the contact information was initially recorded in the
Supplemental Information element of the CSDGM description.
To develop more accurate metadata, the NODC reviews metadata for all
accessions on an ongoing basis.
