Baja California to Bering Sea: CD-ROM

B2B CD

MCBI produced B2B 1.1 — an updated CD-ROM of physical, biological, and social data relevant to conservation planning within the Baja California to Bering Sea ecoregion.

This new version includes:

  • New animations for temperature and altimetry
  • Updated deep sea coral records
  • Time and date stamps for loggerhead sea turtle tracks
  • New and improved ETOPO2 bathymetry
  • More Alaska MPAs

 

This CD-ROM product has a uniform extent (12N to 72N, -90E to -180E) that covers the west coast exclusive economic zones of the three NAFTA countries (Mexico, the US and Canada). The data is designed for use with ESRI ArcView 3.x and ArcGIS 8.x products. All data is projected in Lambert Azimuthal Equal Area, as defined by the USGS Hydro 1k project and adopted by the Commission for Environmental Cooperation.

The data is designed for use with ESRI ArcView 3.x and ArcGIS 8.x products.

B2B 1.1 contains all of the data available on B2B 1.0, including:

Physical data:

  • ETOPO2 Bathymetry
  • GTOPO30 Topography
  • 4 years of 9km SST
  • 3 years of altimetry

Biological data:

  • 3 years of SEAWIFS chlorophyll
  • Almost 3000 deep sea coral records
  • Blue whale tracks and turtle tracks

Social Data:

  • EEZs
  • Federal MPAs
  • Ports
