NOAA ESRI Grid - seafloor hardbottom occurrence predictions model in New York offshore planning area from Biogeography Branch

This dataset represents hard bottom occurrence predictions from a spatial model developed for the New York offshore spatial planning area. This model builds upon the data compilation and analytical framework laid out by Greene et al. (2010). The model also provides a continuous gridded prediction surface representing the likelihood of hard bottom occurrence.
