Galeta Oil Spill Project

Available Data

The following data are available for use by other researchers. If used for a publication, please cite the scientist in charge of the relevant sub-project, as described in the sub-project documentation file. In addition, users are requested to state that the data was obtained from the Marine Environmental Sciences Program of  the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute.

The data files for each subproject, along with the documentation file, are combined into compressed files (with an extension of .zip)  which may be uncompressed using software provide by PKWare, Inc. Two copies of each data file are provided, one an ASCII text file and the other a Dbase III file. The two types of data files are compressed into separate zip files (txt.zip denotes the ASCII file, dbf.zip denotes the Dbase file).  In addition, there is a file consisting of a general documentation file and all of the documentation files for the sub-projects. Below is a list of  the compressed files and the data files composing them.
