Description: Marspec Plan Curvature: 3 components of terrain curvature were calculated in order to characterize how ocean bottom currents might interact with the seafloor. Plan curvature is the curvature in the direction perpendicular to the maximum slope and indicates whether flow across a surface would diverge (positive values) or converge (negative values).
