Title: NOAA TIFF Image - 4m Bathymetric Mean Depth of Red Snapper Research Areas in the South Atlantic Bight, 2010
Short Name: se_atl_efh_meandepth_10
Status: Completed
Publication Date: 2012
Abstract:

This dataset contains unified Bathymetric Mean Depth 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. Mean Depth was derived from this surface using the focal statistic function in ArcGIS Spatial Analyst.

Purpose:

The spatial products developed in this project will provide ocean managers and researchers with essential fish habitat information.

Data Quality

Completeness Report:

This GeoTiff is sourced from a CARIS gridded dataset. The original full-resolution multibeam data was used to create a downsampled uniform-resolution CARIS BASE (Bathymetry Associated with Statistical Error) surface grid with a best depth component. The downsampled grid nodes from that depth surface were then exported and used to generate a grid in ArcGIS. Some positional shifts may have occurred between the original data points and the transformed grid.

Conceptual Consistency:

As the survey was not conducted to meet IHO standards, all users should independently analyze the dataset according to their own needs and standards to determine data usability.

Process Steps

Process Step 1

CC ID: 601447
Description:

For this project, data was collected aboard the NOAA Ship Nancy Foster from 09/15/2010 to 10/21/2010. Multibeam data were acquired in .all format with a hull-mounted Kongsberg Simrad 1002 ER multibeam echosounder (95 kHz). Backscatter snippet collection was enabled. Line spacing for acquisition was three times the water depth, and data was retained out to 60 degrees from nadir. Heave, roll, pitch and heading correctors were collected using an Applanix POS/MV Model 320 V4 inertial measurement unit (IMU) and associated Trimble GPS antennas. Sound velocity profiles were acquired with a Seabird Electronics SeaCat SBE19P CTD profiler and processed using NOAA's Velocwin V8.85 software, then applied directly to the raw data. Positioning was obtained using Trimble Zephyr GPS receivers. Data was reduced to Mean Lower-Low Water (MLLW) using final approved tides from NOAA COOPS, based on National Water Level Observation Network (NWLON).

Process Date/Time: 2012-01-01 00:00:00

Process Step 2

CC ID: 601448
Description:

Raw .all data were converted and processed using CARIS HIPS v7.1 software, resulting in a CARIS HDCS format dataset with all correctors applied. Attitude and SWMB data was cleaned of fliers, and SWMB data was reviewed in subset mode.

Process Date/Time: 2012-01-01 00:00:00
Source: Raw Multibeam Data

Process Step 3

CC ID: 601449
Description:

After being submitted to CCMA by NOAA Ship Nancy Foster, CARIS HIPS v7.1 was used to generate a CARIS BASE surface (similar to a DTM), based on weighted swath angle, from the processed HDCS data. Then CARIS export tool "BASE Surface to ASCII" was used to export a GeoTiff in NAD83 UTM zone 17N. Rusgosity surface was generated from the Bathymetry using NOAA's Benthic Terrain Modeler.
