Coastal Relief Model Video Tour

This video presents a brief overview of the coverage of the NGDC Coastal Relief Model (CRM) data. The views are broken into 5 groupings of data, starting from Maine to Georgia with closeups of the Cape Cod area's glacial features and the Hudson Marine Canyon. The second part continues from Florida to South Texas, including a closer look at the salt dome province extending from the Mississippi delta to the central Texas coast. The third sequence travels northward along the Pacific Coast, specifically visiting the Monterey Canyon and Mendocino Fracture Zone and escarpment. Finally, the tour circles first Puerto Rico, and then Hawaii.
