Equipment Used
Map specific areas on the outer continental shelf, northwestern
Gulf of Mexico. These data should prove extremely useful in relating
dominant species groups (which display highly specific biotope affinities)
to the geomorphology (e.g., reef flattop, forereef crest, reef wall,
reef base, circum-reef talus zone, circum-reef, high-reflectivity sediment
apron, etc.).
Information to be Derived
Bathymetry and calibrated, co-registered acoustic backscatter
