The Kawaihae DEM integrates bathymetry and topography in the area surrounding the town of Kawaihae, Hawaii. It covers the northern portion of the Island of Hawaii, including the communities of Kawaihae and Mahukona, and extends northwards along the underwater flanks of the volcanic edifice. The DEM has a 1/3 arc-second (~10 meter) cell size, and is referenced to a vertical datum of mean high water. It was built in June 2011 to support NOAA's Tsunami Program.
