Data Identification
Abstract: This dataset contains unified Bathymetric Curvature GeoTiffs with 4x4 meter cell resolution describing the topography of 15 areas along the shelf edge off the South Atlantic Bight where NOAA South East Fisheries Independent Survey (SEFIS) are conducting research on Red Snapper (lutjanus campechanus). The multibeam data covers a total of 232 sq km and was collected in 2010 by the NOAA Ship Nancy Foster with a hull-mounted Kongsberg Simrad EM 1002 multibeam echo sounder (95 kHz). It was processed by NOAA's NOS/NCCOS/CCMA Biogeography Branch using CARIS HIPS 7.1 software. Data has all correctors applied (attitude, sound velocity) and has been reduced to mean lower low water (MLLW) using final approved tides and zoning from NOAA COOPS. The processed CARIS data was used to generate a CARIS BASE surface using CUBE. The CARIS export option "BASE Surface to ASCII" was then used to create a GeoTiff of the priority areas in ArcGIS 10. Curvature was derived from this surface using the curvature function in ArcGIS 3D Analyst.
Purpose: The spatial products developed in this project will provide ocean managers and researchers with essential fish habitat information.
