This dataset reports measurement of sediment sample wet weight (g) and dry weight (g) for core sub-samples at 2mm sampling intervals for “surficial unit” and 5mm sampling resolution intervals to the base of cores. Bulk density is the dry weight per sampling volume expressed as g/cm3. The dataset also reports percent porewater. The sediment cores were collected onboard the R/V Weatherbird II cruises WB-0813 and WB-1405 in the northern Gulf of Mexico from 2013-08-15 to 2013-09-27. Chief scientists for these cruises were Dr. Steve Murawski and Dr. David Hollander for WB-0813, and Oscar Garcia for WB-1405. The objective of cruise WB-0813 was to create Gulf-wide baselines for sediment and fish and cruise WB-1405 was dedicated for benthic ecology.
