ETOPO5 Global Surface Relief


ETOPO5 is a 5 arc-minute global relief model of Earth's surface that integrates land topography and ocean bathymetry. It was built from numerous global and regional data sets. This historical dataset has been deprecated in favor of the newer and higher-resolution ETOPO1 1 arc-minute global relief model.
