Description: Marspec Profile Curvature: Using the Surface tools within the Spatial Analyst toolbox in ArcGIS 9.3.1, six geophysical variables were derived from bathymetry to characterize different facets of aspect, slope, and terrain curvature of the seafloor. Profile curvature is the curvature in the direction parallel to the maximum slope and indicates whether flow across a surface would accelerate (positive values) or decelerate (negative values).
