Bathymetric Position Index (structures) : small scale structures indicating slopes, crests and depressions on the Belgian continental shelf (UG_RCMG_BPI_s)

Archived data
Availability: Restricted
The data are withheld from general circulation and disclosure but access may be obtained on a case-by-case basis through negotiation

Notes: Release with permission of the appropriate parties

Small scale structures indicating e.g. narrow depressions, depressions on crests, steep slopes on the Belgian continental shelf (BCS) derived from the digital elevation model (DEM) of the BCS using the Bathymetric Position Index (Weiss (2001); Iampietro & Kvitek (2002)). The DEM was compiled by the RCMG from bathymetric singlebeam data from the Ministry of the Flemish Community (Department of Environment and Infrastructure, Waterways and Marine Affairs Administration, Division Coast, Hydrographic Office) and was completed with data from the Hydrographic Office of the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.
