Sediment physical properties (Shelf Cruise and HKW Cruise 2017)


Figure (1) Map of sediment sampling stations and the physical properties (hypoxia highlighted)

In a map format, Figures (1) shows the physical properties of the surface bed sediments collected from the Shelf Cruise and HKW cruise in Summer 2017, including the median particle size (D50), the silt and clay content by dry mass (i.e. % below 63µm), and the wet bulk density. The highlighted stations in boxes are among those where hypoxia occurred during the sampling period (i.e. DO <2mg/L).
