Seabed photographic imagery and sidescan from AUVs for habitat mapping
and classification
Information to be Derived
Habitat maps
Conducted 10 transects with the Seabed AUV over various seabed
(habitat)types, including gravel, boulder reefs, mobile and immobile sand, and
mud.  AUV digital camera collected up to 2500 photos per transect.  Original
data (photos, depth, temp data) archived at the Deep Submergence Lab at WHOI
No USGS equipment required. Two autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV)
were used: SeaBED and REMUS.
