Title: Backscatter imagery in Jobos Bay
Abstract: This image represents a 1x1 meter resolution backscatter mosaic of Jobos Bay, Puerto Rico (in NAD83 UTM 19 North). The backscatter values are in relative 8-bit (0 255) numbers, since the SoNAR (Sound Navigation and Ranging) sensor was not calibrated. Different benthic habitat types were...
