Description

Highly detailed maps of benthic habitats within the lagoon along the western shore of Saipan were created by NOAA NCCOS. This data collection includes the information used to create these detailed maps, including: 1) a high resolution satellite image, 2) depths derived from this satellite image, 3) in situ habitat information, 4) 12 predictions describing the probability of occurrence for five substrate and seven biological cover types, and 5) a composite habitat map showing the spatial distribution of seven commonly co-occurring substrate and biological cover types inside the lagoon.
