        abstract:  Bathymetry of Lake Huron has been compiled as a component of a NOAA project to rescue Great Lakes lake floor geological and geophysical data and make it more accessible. This project is a cooperative effort between investigators at the NOAA National Geophysical Data Center's Marine Geology and Geophysics Division (NGDC/MGG), the NOAA Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory (GLERL) and the Canadian Hydrographic Service(CHS). Bathymetric data have been collected from the Great Lakes in support of nautical charting for at least 150 years by the US Army Corp. of Engineers (before 1970), the NOAA National Ocean Service (NOS)(after 1970), and the Canadian Hydrographic Service.

        abstract:  This is an ArcGIS image service showing color shaded relief visualizations of high-resolution digital elevation models (DEMs) of U.S. coastal regions. NOAA's National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC) builds and distributes high-resolution coastal digital elevation models (DEMs) that integrate ocean bathymetry and land topography to support NOAA's mission to understand and predict changes in Earth's environment, and conserve and manage coastal and marine resources to meet our Nation's economic, social, and environmental needs. They can be used for modeling of coastal processes (tsunami inundation, storm surge, sea-level rise, contaminant dispersal, etc.), ecosystems management and habitat research, coastal and marine spatial planning, and hazard mitigation and community preparedness. DEMs included in this visualization: High-resolution DEMs of select U.S. coastal communities and surrounding areas. Most are at a resolution of 1/3 to 1 arc-second (approx 10-30 m); U.S. Coastal Relief Model: A 3 arc-second (approx 90 m) comprehensive view of the conterminous U.S. coastal zone, Puerto Rico, and Hawaii; Southern Alaska Coastal Relief Model: A 24 arc-second (approx. 500 m) model of Southern Alaska, spanning the Bering Sea, Aleutian Islands, and Gulf of Alaska. This map service can be used as a basemap. It has a transparent background, so it can also be shown as a layer on top of a different basemap. Please see NGDC's corresponding DEM Footprints map service for polygon footprints and more information about the individual DEMs used to create this composite view.

        abstract:  A map service showing the location and coverage of land and seafloor digital elevation models (DEMs) available from NOAA's National Geophysical Data Center. NOAA's National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC) builds and distributes high-resolution, coastal digital elevation models (DEMs) that integrate ocean bathymetry and land topography to support NOAA's mission to understand and predict changes in Earth's environment, and conserve and manage coastal and marine resources to meet our Nation's economic, social, and environmental needs. They can be used for modeling of coastal processes (tsunami inundation, storm surge, sea-level rise, contaminant dispersal, etc.), ecosystems management and habitat research, coastal and marine spatial planning, and hazard mitigation and community preparedness. Layers available in the map service: Layers 1-4: DEMs by Category (includes various DEMs, both hosted at NGDC, and elsewhere on the web); Layers 6-11: NGDC DEM Projects (DEMs hosted at NGDC, color-coded by project); Layer 12: All NGDC Bathymetry DEMs (All bathymetry or bathy-topo DEMs hosted at NGDC).
