BOREAS REGIONAL DEM IN RASTER FORMAT AND AEAC PROJECTION
Get Data

Summary:

This data set is based on the GTOPO30 DEM produced by the USGS EDC. The BOREAS region (1,000km x 1000km) was extracted from the GTOPO30 data and reprojected by BOREAS staff into the AEAC projection. The pixel size of these data is 1 km.

A guide document which includes more information about this data set can be found at http://daac.ornl.gov/boreas/STAFF/reg_aeac/comp/Region_AEAC_DEM.txt.

ORNL DAAC maintains information on the entire BOREAS Project.
