NOAA/PIBHMC 5-m Bathymetry: American Samoa: Tau


A 5-m resolution gridded digital elevation model (DEM) for the bathymetry (ocean depth) surrounding Tau Island in American Samoa compiled from ship-borne multibeam sonar surveys merged with coastal bathymetry derived from multipectral IKONOS satellite data. Almost complete bottom coverage was achieved in depths between 0 and 350 m. Data collected by the NOAA Coral Reef Ecosystem Division (CRED) Pacific Islands Benthic Habitat Mapping Center (PIBHMC) in support of NOAA's Coral Reef Conservation Program. Not to be used for navigational purposes. For further details, please see: http://www.soest.hawaii.edu/pibhmc/pibhmc_amsamoa_tau.htm
