Name: Descriptor

Display Field: DESCRIPTOR

Type: Feature Layer

Geometry Type: esriGeometryPolygon

Description: Twenty-seven distinct and non-overlapping habitat types were identified that could be mapped by visual interpretation of remotely collected imagery. Habitats or features that cover areas smaller than the MMU were not considered. For example, sand halos surrounding patch reefs are too small to be mapped independently. Habitat refers only to each benthic community's substrate and/or cover type and does not address location on the shelf. Habitats are defined in a collapsible hierarchy ranging from four broad classes (unconsolidated sediment, submerged vegetation, coral reef and hardbottom, and other), to more detailed categories (e.g., emergent vegetation, seagrass, algae, individual patch reefs, uncolonized volcanic rock), to patchiness of some specific features (e.g., 50-90% cover of macroalgae).
