Description:
Abstract:
This map displays optical validation observation locations and percent coverage of scleractinian coral overlaid on bathymetry.
Purpose:
To display locations of optical validation data collected and percent coverage of scleractinian coral at Asuncion.
Supplemental_Information:
Ascuncion Island is an active volcanic cone and has a land area of 7.3 square km. The island is protected from development by the CNMI Constitution, as it has been declared a wildlife conservation area. It is home to nesting colonies of Sooty and Gray-backed Terns (Sterna fuscata and S. lunata, respectively). The seafloor off Ascuncion Island features high densities of sea pens in the vicinity of the 100 m isobath in some areas. Cruises CoRIS Metadata Record Names OES0307 cred_toad_asuncion_oes0307_2003
