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 Ta'u.
Supplemental_Information:
Ta’u Island is part of the Manu’a Island group in American Samoa, situated approximately 150 km northeast of Tutuila and 20 km east of Olosega Island. Ta’u is an extremely steep, heavily vegetated high volcanic island with almost no surrounding banks; the seafloor surrounding Ta’u drops steeply to abyssal depths. Centered at 14.23S, 169.50W, Ta'u has very little human settlement.
