Abstract:

The data inventoried in this report covers geotechnical subjects such as the physical properties of the sediment, the presence of landslides in the drainage basin, the productivity of the drainage basin, as well as data on the rate of cliff erosion. Information on geological processes such as the loss of sand to sinks such as submarine canyons, or beach sand-dune build up is also given. The data on the physical properties of the sediments includes texture and petrographic information on samples that were collected from subarmine canyons, the continental shelf, the littoral zone, the lagoons, and dunes, as well as the cliffs and the drainges. The data is presented both as tabular information and as map indexes. The map indexes show the aerial coverage of the reports from which the data was abstracted from. Author
