The Morehead City DEM integrates bathymetry and topography in the area surrounding the port of Morehead City, North Carolina. It spans the southwestern portion of Pamlico Sound, and extends from the southern tip of Ocracoke Island, to just north of Jacksonville, including the towns of Beaufort and Atlantic Beach. 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 April 2011 to support NOAA's Tsunami Program.
