Abstract:
Gridded multibeam bathymetry is integrated with gridded LiDAR bathymetry and bathymetry derived from multispectral IKONOS satellite data. Gridded (5 m cell size) multibeam bathymetry collected aboard NOAA Ship Hiialaka'i and R/V AHI. Lidar bathymetry were collected by the Naval Oceanographic Office. Bathymetry values shallower than 25 m were derived by gauging the reletive attenuation of blue and green spectral radiance as a function of depth. A multiple linear regression analysis of linearized blue and green band spectral values against depth determined the variables of y-intercept, blue slope and green slope values. Variables then used in multivariate slope intercept formula to derive depth. Variables were adjusted to improve the statistical accuracy and spatial coverage of the final derived bathymetry product. Digital image processing to derive depths conducted with the ENVI 4.5 software program while data editing and integration was performed using ArcGIS 9.3. This dataset is for the shelf environment of Saipan Island, Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands, USA
Purpose:
The data were derived in support of NOAA Coral Reef Conservation Program goals. Goal 1 is to map all U.S. Coral Reef Ecosystems. This data set specifically addresses Objective 1 and 4: to develop high-resolution benthic maps and to characterize priority deep water reefs and associated habitats. This integration of derived bathymetry with multibeam sonar data provides a GIS layer with expanded spatial coverage that may be used for benthic and essential fish habitat characterization, and for the study of geologic features. By combining the dataset with other bathymetry, backscatter, derivatives, and in situ data, they collectively compose benthic habitat maps designed to be used to understand and predict shallow depth (0m to 150m) benthic habitats for organisms that inhabit coral reef ecosystems.
Supplemental_Information:
Gridded multibeam data were collected aboard the Hi'ialakai, a 218' United States National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) research ship, and aboard the R/V AHI (Acoustic Habitat Investigator), a 25' survey launch owned and operated by the NOAA Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center in Honolulu, HI. The metadata for the bathymetry is documented in the product metadata, saipan_5m.txt <http://www.soest.hawaii.edu/pibhmc/pibhmc_cnmi_sai.htm> Lidar data were provided by the Naval Oceanographic Office, and were obtained using a SHOALS airborne system during January-March 2001. Original IKONOS imagery was purchased to support the Pacific Islands Geographic Information System (GIS) project and National Ocean Service's (NOS) coral mapping activities. Orthographically corrected IKONOS Imagery was provided by NOAA's National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science, Center for Coastal Monitoring and Assessment. The metadata for this IKONOS imagery is documented in the original product metadata, po_108479_metadata.txt, po_113126_metadata.txt and po_83075_metadata.txt. (<http://www.soest.hawaii.edu/pibhmc/>)

Process_Description:
Multiple tools in ENVI 4.5 were used to complete the following processing steps: Data conversion from digital number to radiance, correction for atmosphere and water surface reflection, linearization of spectral decay as function of depth, masking of non-applicable values, and bathymetric derivation using variables from multiple linear regression analysis. Multiple tools in ArcGIS 9.3 were used for dataset integration and to extract values for the multiple linear regression analysis and subsequent error analyses. The statisitcs program S-Plus was used for the multiple linear regression analysis to provide original variables for depth derivation. The multivariate slope intercept formula used to derive depth was Depth=Yint+(Mblue)(Xblue)+(Mgreen)(Xgreen). Sixteen derived products, six from the image saipan_075_msi_000.pix (Sai07500), five from the image saipan_126_msi_000.pix (Sai12600), four from the image saipan_479_msi_000.pix (Sai47900) and five from the image saipan_479_msi_001.pix (Sai47901), were integrated to expand spatial coverage. The original MLR variables for Sai07500 were Yint=-5.1796, Mblue=-14.7510, and Mgreen=17.0081. The product derived from these variables (Sai07500_DB) was mosaiced with five additional products derived using increasingly reduced Y-intercept values as follows: Yint=-6.1796 (Sai07500_DB1), Yint=-7.1796 (Sai07500_DB2), Yint=-8.1796 (Sai07500_DB3), Yint=-9.1796 (Sai07500_DB4), Yint=-10.1796 (Sai07500_DB5). This was done to increase coverage in shallow areas. More information on this integration process is provided in the product error analysis, availble from PIBHMC upon request. The original MLR variables for Sai12600 were Yint=10.7316, Mblue=-13.0256, and Mgreen=29.0495. The product derived from these variables (Sai12600_DB) was the only product derived from this image. More information on the treatment of this product is provided in the product error analysis, availble from PIBHMC upon request. The original MLR variables for Sai47900 were Yint=4.2506, Mblue=-17.2381, and Mgreen=30.5051. The product derived from these variables (Sai47900_DB) was mosaiced with three additional products derived using increasingly reduced Y-intercept values as follows: Yint=0.2506 (Sai47900_DB4), Yint=-3.7494 (Sai47900_DB8) and Yint=-7.7494 (Sai47900_DB12). This was done to increase coverage in shallow areas. More information on this integration process is provided in the product error analysis, availble from PIBHMC upon request. The original MLR variables for Sai47901 were Yint=16.0489, Mblue=-8.1726, and Mgreen=21.6609. The product derived from these variables (Sai47901_DB) was mosaiced with four additional products derived using increasingly reduced Y-intercept values as follows: Yint=12.0489 (Sai47901_DB4), Yint=8.0489 (Sai47901_DB8), Yint=4.0489 (Sai47901_DB12), Yint=0.0489 (Sai47901_DB16). This was done to increase coverage in shallow areas. More information on this integration process is provided in the product error analysis, availble from PIBHMC upon request. The derived bathymetry from each image were in turn mosaiced averaging the the concurrent data from image Sai07500 and Sai12600 (once it was trimmed) to minimize seams in the area of overlap. Data from this combined grid was prioritized below that from Sai47901 and data from Sai47900 received the highest priority. Data with better statistical accuracy was given higher "priority" so that they replaced concurrent data with lower accuracy during the mosaic process. This mosaiced derived bathymetry product (Sai_DBall) was then resampled to a 5 meter grid and integrated with the multibeam sonar data and LiDAR data, with sonar data prioritized over the LiDAR data and with the derived data given lowest priorty, to create the final product (Sai_MB_Li_DB). A detailed description of all processing steps is available at: <http://oregonstate.edu/~hogrefek/Cookbook/Cookbook_042108.pdf> An error analysis of each derived bathymetry grid used is available upon request.
