This repository contains all data sets generated as part of Tozer et al., (2019) Global bathymetry and topography at 15 arc seconds: SRTM15+
These data are available in various file formats, as described in Section 5 of the paper.
To view and interact with these data on a 'digital globe', readers are recommended to download and install the freely available GPlates software [https://www.gplates.org/download.html] and open the GPlates project [SRTM15+V2.0.gproj] located in the GPlates directory. Note, once unzipped the GPLATES directory requires 138 GB of free disk space.
Google Earth Pro offers an alternative digital globe [https://www.google.com/earth/] for users that lack the required disk space for the Gplates project. The .kmz files in the GOOGLE_EARTH directory are only 40 KB in total as they are linked to raster data hosted at topex.ucsd.edu. However, this method requires a stable internet connection.
THE OBJECTIVE OF OUR RESEARCH IS TO PROVIDE GUIDANCE TO THE SURFACE WATER AND OCEAN TOPOGRAPHY PROJECT TO ACHIEVE THE BEST POSSIBLE MEASUREMENTS OF OCEAN SURFACE SLOPE FOR APPLICATIONS IN MARINE GEOPHYSICS.
