Description:
Abstract:
This set of GIS shapefiles describe seafloor geomorphic features mapped from bathymetric analysis, with features cross-checked from available seismic lines. The mapping is based on GEBCO contours, ETOPO2, seismic lines. Expanded from O’Brien et al. (2009). This set of shapefiles has been prepared in the framework of the Census of Antarctic Marine Life (CAML) Polar Macroscope, and of the Convention for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR) Bioregionalization workshop. It is now available as a background layer on the ANTABIF WebGIS, and served both through the ANTABIF geoserver and ANTABIF shared repository.
