Integrated hard and soft bottom seafloor substrate map of Rose Atoll, American Samoa combining NOAA Pacific Island Fisheries Science Center Coral Reef Ecosystem Division hard-soft substrate maps with NOAA Center for Coastal Monitoring and Assessment Biogeography Program shallow-water benthic habitat map of American Samoa.

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

Hard and soft seafloor substrate map, derived from integrating two existing map products: hard and soft substrate maps derived from an unsupervised classification of multibeam backscatter and bathymetry derivatives, produced by NOAA Pacific Island Fisheries Science Center Coral Reef Ecosystem Division (CRED), and shallow-water benthic habitat map of American Samoa, produced by NOAA Center for Coastal Monitoring and Assessment Biogeography Program. Please refer to separate metadata and documentation for these products: Substrate - hard bottom vs. soft bottom - 5 meter grid & 40 meter grid http://www.soest.hawaii.edu/pibhmc/pibhmc_amsamoa_rose_geomorph.htm Shallow-water benthic habitat map http://ccma.nos.noaa.gov/ecosystems/coralreef/us_pac_terr/ This data is for Rose Atoll, Territory of American Samoa, USA.
