Description:
Abstract:
This map displays optical validation observation locations and percent coverage of scleractinian coral overlaid on bathymetry. Optical data were collected by CRED TOAD camera sled aboard the NOAA ship Oscar Elton Sette on cruises OES 0308 and SE 1002, and by the CRED-NWFSC SeaBED AUV during Oscar Elton Sette cruise SE1002.
Purpose:
To display locations of optical validation data collected and percent coverage of scleractinian coral at Galvez Bank.
Supplemental_Information:
Galvez Bank is part of the U.S. territory of Guam and located about 12 nautical miles (22 km) south-southwest of the island of Guam. The bank actually consists of several bathymetric highs, with a minimum charted depth of 20 m. Most of the bank top is characterized by moderate relief reef, with algae, coral patch reefs and associated reef fish communities. This map includes classified video data from all TOAD camera sled tows conducted over the bank during 20(cruise OES0208) and 2010 (cruise SE1002), and classified photographs from selected AUV dives conducted over the bank in 2010 (cruise SE1002). During cruise SE1002 8 AUV dives were conducted over Galvez Bank. However, as the AUV was still undergoing testing and trials, several of the dives were aborted early, and several repeated the same route. Therefore, only photos from 3 dives have been classified for this map. These were selected due to being complete dives covering distinct routes/ More details can be found in the relevant cruise metadata: Cruises CoRIS Metadata Record Names OES0308 cred_toad_galvez_bank_guam_oes0308_2003.txt SE1002 (TOAD) cred_toad_gal_se1002_2010.txt SE1002 (AUV) cred_auv_se1002_2010.txt
