Abstract:

Managers have some ability to support healthy environmental conditions through strategic action at a local and regional scale, such as water quality. This layer synthesized spatial information for several managed conditions to create a relative score for how favorable a given location is for coral growth and survival.

Environmental conditions contributing to this layer included: chlorophyll-a concentration, fish and herbivore biomass, turbidity (Kd490), macroalgal cover, and ocean-based pollution. Covariation in these conditions was accounted for using principal component analysis (PCA) to form composite variables of conditions that have strong relationships with one another. The resulting principal components were averaged and scaled from 0 (worst) to 1 (best) to produce a coral favorability score for managed conditions. These data are provided for the island of Guam as a raster with a resolution of 1500 m.

Purpose:

These data can be used to visualize patterns of environmental favorability for coral growth and survival, highlighting similarities and dissimilarities in geographic patters across climate scenarios. These data were generated as part of a partnership between USGS and the Pacific Islands Ocean Observing System (PacIOOS) to fill ocean data gaps identified by the Regional Ocean Data Sharing Initiative. The data can be used with geographic information systems (GIS) software for research purposes.

Credit:

The Pacific Islands Ocean Observing System (PacIOOS) is funded through the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) as a Regional Association within the U.S. Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS). PacIOOS is coordinated by the University of Hawaii School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology (SOEST).

Protocol: OGC:WMS-C
Description: Open Geospatial Consortium Web Map Service - Cached (WMS-C). Use of WMS-C is similar to traditional WMS but with the addition of the "tiled=true" parameter, which triggers GeoServer to pull map tiles from GeoWebCache if they have been previously generated. This can dramatically improve performance, especially for larger datasets. Supported map formats include JPEG and PNG. Supported info formats include GeoJSON, GML, HTML, and plain text.
