Bathymetric Position Index (BPI) Structures 5 m grid derived from gridded bathymetry of Galvez Bank, South Galvez Bank, and 11-Mile Reef, Territory of Guam, USA.

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

BPI Structures are derived from two scales of a focal mean analysis on bathymetry and slope. The grid is based on gridded (5 m cell size) multibeam bathymetry, collected aboard NOAA Ship Oscar Elton Sette. BPI Structures was created using the Benthic Terrain Modeler (http://www.csc.noaa.gov/digitalcoast/tools/btm/). The Cell values represent one of 12 classes in an index of seafloor terrains. This data set is for Galvez Bank, South Galvez Bank, and 11-Mile Reef, Territory of Guam, USA.
