Abstract:

This report provides background information on a world-wide set of ocean depths and land elevations recently compiled in meters and averaged over areas roughly equivalent to one degree squares of latitude and longitude at the equator. Averaging was done by visual estimation from contour charts having scales ranging between 11 and 125 million with contour intervals of 1000 meters or 200 fathoms. A description of the source charts, square referencing, averaging methods, error checks and estimates, is included.
