Statement: Integrated bathymetric-topographic relief model of Southern Alaska; 24 arc-second cell size

Abstract: The Southern Alaska Coastal Relief Model is a 24 arc-second digital elevation model ranging from 170° to 230° and 48.5° to 66.5° N. It integrates bathymetry and topography to represent Earth's surface and spans over the Gulf of Alaska, Bering Sea, Aleutian Islands, and Alaska's largest communities: Anchorage, Fairbanks, and Juneau. The relief model was built from a variety of source datasets acquired from the National Geophysical Data Center, National Ocean Service, United States Geological Survey, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, and other U.S. and international agencies.

The CRM provides a framework to enable scientists to model tsunami propagation and ocean circulation. In addition, it may be useful for benthic habitat research, weather forecasting, and environmental stewardship.
