Estimated Bathymetry of the Puerto Rico shelf

Metadata Updated: February 7, 2018

This classification of estimated depth represents the relative bathymetry of Puerto Rico's shallow waters based on Landsat imagery for NOAA's Coastal Centers for Monitoring and Assessment (CCMA). This data supports mapping and research activities of NOAA NOS. These data were created for the NOS Summit-to-Sea project. This project determines relationships between terrestrial and benthic change. The data were created using NOS developed algorithms. Bathymetry was derived from six Landsat images of different dates for Puerto Rico. The final bathymetry layer was derived from a per pixel median analysis of the 6 bathymetric layers. The results were verified using field collected depth supplied by NOAA. Depths are only reported within the shallow environment as determined by maximum penetration of band 1 (blue) of Landsat TM.
