What does this data set describe?

Title:
Coral Research Data from NOAA's Undersea Research Center, Southeast U.S. and Gulf of Mexico, NOAA's Undersea Research Program (NURP)
Abstract:
NOAA's Undersea Research Center for the Southeastern U.S. and Gulf of Mexico region (SEGM) explores and studies the waters off the Southeast coast as well as those in the Gulf of Mexico. These waters include the South Atlantic Bight, Florida Keys, and Gulf of Mexico, including the states of North Carolina, South Carolina Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, and Texas. The Center's systems and technology include the Aquarius Undersea Lab, human-occupied submersibles, remotely operated vehicles, autonomous underwater vehicles, as well as other resource systems and tools.
