What does this data set describe?

Title:
Coral Research Data from NOAA's Undersea Research Center, North Atlantic and Great Lakes Region, NOAA's Undersea Research Program (NURP)
Abstract:
NOAA's Undersea Research Center for the NOAA's Undersea Research Center for the North Atlantic and Great Lakes region (NAGL) explores and studies the waters off the northeast coast of the United States (i.e., Gulf of Maine, Georges Bank and the Southern New England Bight including Long Island Sound) and the Laurentian Great Lakes. Underwater diving technologies available through the Center include occupied submersibles, remotely operated vehicles (ROV's), and Nitrox scuba. NURC-NAGL specializes in development of sampling technologies that increase the utility of submersible vehicles, in particular, remotely operated vehicle (ROV) systems.
