Lineage Original data were sourced from the Falkland Islands Government (Department of Mineral Resources) hydrocarbon exploration data and published reports and papers. Data was processed through dbSEABED algorythms developed by a research group at the University of Colorado, USA.. The final products, sediment type and dsitributions model of gravel, mud, sand, rock, and carbonates, as well as sand:gravel and sand:mud ratios, have been re-sampled at a higher resolution than the model output files.
