Savannah, GA/SC 1/3 arc-second MHW DEM

The Savannah DEM integrates bathymetry and topography in the area surrounding the town of Savannah, Georgia. It covers the coastal area surrounding the Savannah River and includes the southern tip of South Carolina and easternmost Georgia. 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 December 2006 to support NOAA's Tsunami Program.
