I believe the roughness over natural reefs has been pursued by Stanford folks:  graduate students C MacDonald, R Lowe, M Reidenbach. Profs Koseff and Monismith.

If rugosity is a good measure of topographic complexity and this is related to ecology and fish habitat, we could see some important science. We have good bathymetry for some natural reefs and would just need bathy/topo data for artificial reefs.
