The King Cove DEM integrates bathymetry and topography in the area surrounding the town of King Cove, Alaska, on the south side of the Alaska Peninsula. It covers Cold Bay, Belkofski Bay, Deer Island and Sandman Reefs, and extends south to Sanak Island. The DEM has a 1 arc-second (~30 meter) cell size, and is referenced to a vertical datum of mean high water. It was built in August 2008 to support NOAA's Tsunami Program.
