Summary
Abstract: In April 2004, more than 40 hours of georeferenced submarine digital video was
collected in water depths of 15-370 m in Glacier Bay to (1) ground-truth
existing geophysical data (bathymetry and acoustic reflectance), (2) examine
and record geologic characteristics of the sea floor, and (3) investigate the
relation between substrate types and benthic communities, and (4) construct
predictive maps ... View entire text
