Overview > Benthic Habitat Viewer

Here is the first image and data of this cluster showing the location, benthic habitat type, geomorphological structure, and seafloor terrain characteristics (i.e., bathymetry, slope, and rugosity). In addition, the two bottom panes show maps of the location of the image in reference to fine-scale bathymetric data and a depth profile showing the location to overall bathymetry.

Navigate among all images and coresponding data by clicking the forward or reverse arrows. Double arrows jump by five images allowing faster navigation.
