Item Identification

Title: Hard and Soft Bottom Seafloor Substrate Maps Derived from an Unsupervised Classification of Gridded Backscatter at Select U.S. Locations in the Pacific
Short Name: Hard Soft Substrate: Pacific (backscatter h/s)
Status: Completed
Publication Date: 2016
Abstract:

Substrate, Hard bottom vs. Soft bottom: This is a preliminary product. Cell values reflect whether the seafloor is hard bottom or soft bottom based on an unsupervised classification run using ArcGIS software with the Spatial Analyst extension. The classifications are based on backscatter, bathymetry, acoustic derivatives and optical data.

Please see the individual metadata records for additional information on sources used and data processing steps for each location where data are available.

Purpose:

The hard and soft seafloor map is being used to improve sampling techniques for long-term ecosystem monitoring, to guide future ground-truthing operations and to identify coral-rich and species specific environments. This is a preliminary product and the methods used to generate the map are currently being evaluated for their accuracy.

Notes:

These are the original hard-soft substrate maps produced primarily from backscatter data (prior to the ESA and West Hawaii/West Maui projects). This record does not include the hard-soft substrate maps produced for those two projects.

Data Set Information

Data Set Scope Code: Data Set
Data Set Type: GIS dataset of raster files
Maintenance Frequency: None Planned
Data Presentation Form: Map (digital)
Entity Attribute Overview:

The Hard vs Soft substrate designation is applied by performing an unsupervised classification on bathymetry and, where available, backscatter data using the Iso Cluster classification tool in ArcGIS. This classification produces two classes, representing hard and soft substrate.

Distribution Liability:

While every effort has been made to ensure that these data are accurate and reliable within the limits of the current state of the art, NOAA cannot assume liability for any damages caused by errors or omissions in the data, nor as a result of the failure of the data to function on a particular system. NOAA makes no warranty, expressed or implied, nor does the fact of distribution constitute such a warranty.

NOAA Coral Reef Ecosystem Program (CREP) Data Sharing Recommendations, version 9.0 updated August 12, 2015:

CREP welcomes the opportunity to collaborate on research issues contributing to the scientific basis for better management of marine ecosystems. CREP has a very diverse set of field activities that generates large volumes of data using an array of data collection protocols.

The following recommendations are for your consideration as you use this data:

1) Data analyses should take all field exigencies into account. The most effective way to do this would be active collaboration with CREP principal investigators.

2) In all presentations, product releases, or publications using data generated by CREP, proper acknowledgement of both CREP and the individuals responsible for data collection is expected. Citing the DOI (if available) is preferred, a non-DOI example is listed below.

3) If you collect or generate data for the same study areas, CREP requests that you share relevant information on complimentary data collections.

4) Those receiving data are strongly urged to inform the CREP Data Management Team of any errors and discrepancies that are discovered during the course of using these data. They are further urged to bring to the attention of the Team all problems and difficulties encountered in using these data. This information is necessary in order to improve the collections and to facilitate more efficient and economical data processing and retrieval. The users are asked to supply copies of any missing data that may be located, and to provide information as to significant subsets and special aggregations of data that are developed in using the material provided.

Technical Environment

Description:

Hard and Soft substrate classifications were derived from gridded multibeam bathymetry, and backscatter data where available, using the ArcGIS Iso Cluster Unsupervised Classification tool to create a GeoTIFF file.

Data Quality

Representativeness:

Hard and Soft substrate classifications are primarily derived from gridded bathymetry data and backscatter data that is collected from a number of NOAA vessels using multibeam sonars. This multibeam data may be synthesized with other data including LiDAR bathymetry and Ikonos or WorldView satellite image derived bathymetry. Multibeam data collection targets waters from 20 meters to 500 meters depth. LiDAR and satellite derived bathymetry target waters less than 20 meters depth. The goal of all data collection is to collected data over the entire seafloor within the 0-500 meter depth range.

Accuracy:

Horizontal positioning system: GPS C/A

Horizontal position accuracy: 25 meters

Range resolution of sonar: varies with depth

Raw sounding resolution: varies with depth

Vertical accuracy of gridded product ~ 1% of water depth

Completeness Report:

Hard and Soft substrates were determined for all areas where gridded bathymetry data were available. Some gaps exist in bathymetry coverage due to hazardous conditions that prohibited access for the NOAA vessels or to limited time or funding resources.

Conceptual Consistency:

Multibeam bathymetry data were collected by different NOAA vessels using the same collection methods. All multibeam data processing was conducted in the same manner by the Coral Reef Ecosystem program. All bathymetry synthesis data used as source data for the products generated for the Main Hawaiian Islands were processed in the same manner by the Hawaii Mapping Research Group.

Quality Control Procedures Employed:

Corrections for tide variation and vessel attitude are applied to the multibeam data and a CTD (Conductivity, Temperature, and Depth instrument) cast is performed regularly during data collection to correct for variance within the water column.

Multibeam data are tested for internal consistency; however, no effort is made to compare these data to external references or to other published data.
