BOREAS HYD-08 DEM DATA OVER THE NSA-MSA AND SSA-MSA IN UTM PROJECTION
Get Data

Summary:

These DEMs were produced from digitized contours at a cell resolution of 100 meters. Vector contours of the area were used as input to a software package that interpolates between contours to create a DEM representing the terrain surface. The vector contours had a contour interval of 25 feet. The data cover the BOREAS MSAs of the SSA and NSA and are given in a UTM map projection.

ORNL DAAC maintains information on the entire BOREAS Project.
