Benthic Habitat Mapping of American Samoa, Guam, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands

Research Area(s): Marine Spatial Ecology

NCCOS produced a georeferenced, digital atlas of benthic habitat maps for the shallow-water (< 30m) coral ecosystem habitats around these U.S. Pacific Territories. The maps support a variety of management applications, including informing resource management decisions, ensuring safe navigation, supporting coastal communities, sustaining coastal habitats and mitigating coastal hazards.
