Vanuatu Efate, Forari Bay Bathymetry Chart, 1 to 20 000

This record holds the PDF format of the bathymetry chart of Forari Bay in Efate, Vanuatu. The chart shows the 3-dimensional bathymetry map of Forari Bay showing shallow to deep from red to blue. Two times vertical exaggeration. Chart is the result of high-resolution bathymetric mapping survey of the seabed surrounding Forari Bay in Vanuatu using a blend of multibeam (MBES), and singlebeam (SBES) echosounder data. This work was initiated by the SOPAC/EU Reducing Vulnerability of Pacific ACP States Project.This map gives a descriptive picture of the ocean bottom terrain, vividly revealing the size, shape and distribution of underwater features, and serve as the basic tool for scientific, engineering, marine geophysical and environmental studies, as well as marine and coastal resource management.All slope angles exceeding 60 degrees (degrees from horizontal) were interpreted as scarps. Any Inclined area of the seafloor that was laterally confined by distinctive slopes, with or without an upslope headscarp, was interpreted as a channel. Forari Bay Chart provides more information on slope angle and shaded relief maps.
