Rugosity 60 m grid derived from gridded bathymetry of Rota Island, Mariana Islands, USA

Metadata Updated: February 7, 2018

Rugosity is derived from gridded (60 m cell size) multibeam bathymetry, collected aboard NOAA Ship Hiialaka'i and R/V AHI, using the Benthic Terrain Modeler with rugosity methods by Jeff Jenness (2003). Cell values reflect the surface area to planimetric area ratio for the area contained within that cell's neighborhood. They provide indices of topographic roughness & convolutedness. This data set is for the shelf and slope environments of Rota Island.
