Main Hawaiian Islands Multibeam Bathymetry Synthesis: 50-m Bathymetry and Topography


A 50-m resolution gridded synthesis of all available bathymetry (ocean depth) data for the main Hawaiian Islands, including ship-borne multibeam sonar surveys. Land topography from USGS DEMs are included in the grid as well.
