Abstract:

A revision and retabulation of world-wide terrain height data originally prepared at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography is presented. Revisions to the original data include the insertion of the elevation of the surface of lakes, the negative elevation of land areas lying below sea level, and the elevation of heretofore omitted islands. A number of errors have also been corrected, and changes made in the land elevation near coasts. The newly formatted global 1-deg tabulations of terrain data are supplemented by a global analysis, frequency histograms, and zonal averages.
