Central Oregon Coast, OR 1/3 arc-second MHW DEM

The Central Oregon Coast DEM integrates bathymetry and topography along the central coastal area of Oregon. It extends from Cascade Head south to the Umpqua River and includes the communities of Lincoln Beach, Newport, Waldport, and Florence. 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 September 2008 to support NOAA's Tsunami Program.
