                name:  NOAA Tsunami Inundation DEMs
                issueIdentification:  Santa Monica, California NAVD 88
        abstract:  NOAA's National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC) is building high-resolution digital elevation models (DEMs) for select U.S. coastal regions. These integrated bathymetric-topographic DEMs are used to support tsunami forecasting and warning efforts at the NOAA Center for Tsunami Research, Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory (PMEL). The DEMs are part of the tsunami forecast system SIFT (Short-term Inundation Forecasting for Tsunamis) currently being developed by PMEL for the NOAA Tsunami Warning Centers, and are used in the MOST (Method of Splitting Tsunami) model developed by PMEL to simulate tsunami generation, propagation, and inundation. Bathymetric, topographic, and shoreline data used in DEM compilation are obtained from various sources, including NGDC, the U.S. National Ocean Service (NOS), the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and other federal, state, and local government agencies, academic institutions, and private companies. DEMs are referenced to a variety of vertical datums and horizontal datum of World Geodetic System of 1984 (WGS84). Cell size for the DEMs ranges from 1/3 arc-second (~10 meters) to 3 arc-seconds (~90 meters).
        purpose:  Developed for the Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory (PMEL), NOAA Center for Tsunami Research program in support of NOAA's tsunami forecasting and warning efforts.

            nameOfMeasure:  Horizontal Positional Accuracy Report
            evaluationMethodDescription:  The horizontal accuracy of bathymetric and topographic features in the DEM is dependent upon DEM cell size and the accuracy of the input datasets used to determine corresponding cell values. Topography: 10 meters due to DEM cell size. Lidar: less than 5 meters. NED: 10 meters. DEM cell-value relative-contribution factors: CSC, USACE and Ventura County Lidar: 100, , Digitized features: 100, NED: 10. Bathymetry: 10 to several tens of meters. Positional accuracy of input bathymetric datasets limits accuracy of corresponding cell values in DEM. NOS, CSUMB and USGS multibeam sonar: about 5 meters. USACE hydrographic surveys: about 5 meters. ENC extracted soundings and NGDC trackline surveys: 10 to several tens of meters. Early 20th-century NOS hydrographic soundings are limited by sparseness of deep-water soundings, and potentially large position accuracy of pre-satellite (i.e., GPS) navigation: tens to several tens of meters. Morphologic change in inland rivers and along the coast also degrades the positional accuracy of DEM features. Where present, multibeam sonar data supplant NOS hydrographic sounding data values in the DEM. DEM cell-value relative-contribution factors: USACE survey data: 100, ENC soundings: 10, Multibeam sonar data: 100, NOS hydrographic soundings: 10, Trackline survey data: 0.1.

        report:  (DQ_AbsoluteExternalPositionalAccuracy)
            nameOfMeasure:  Vertical Positional Accuracy Report
            evaluationMethodDescription:  The vertical accuracy of bathymetric and topographic features in the DEM is dependent upon DEM cell size and the accuracy of input datasets used to determine corresponding cell values. Topography: 1 to 7 meters. Vertical accuracy of input topographic datasets limits accuracy of corresponding cells in DEM. Lidar: less than 1 meter, NED: 7 meters. DEM cell relative-contribution factors: CSC, USACE, and Ventura County Lidar: 100, , Digitized features: 100, NED: 10. Bathymetry: 0.1 meters to 5% of water depth. Vertical accuracy of input bathymetric datasets limits accuracy of corresponding cells in DEM. GPS-navigated NOS, USGS and CSUMB multibeam sonar : about 0.1 meter. Early 20th-century NOS hydrographic soundings are limited by sparseness of deep-water soundings, and potentially large position accuracy of pre-satellite (i.e., GPS) navigation: several meters. Where present, multibeam sonar data supersede NOS hydrographic sounding data values in DEM. DEM cell relative-contribution factors: USACE survey data: 100, ENC soundings: 10, Multibeam sonar data: 100, NOS hydrographic soundings: 10, Trackline survey data: 0.1. Gridding interpolation to determine cell values between sparse NOS hydrographic soundings in deep water degrades the vertical accuracy of deep-water elevations.

        report:  (DQ_CompletenessCommission)
            evaluationMethodDescription:  NGDC made every effort to obtain all available digital topographic and bathymetric datasets in the region for use in building the DEM.
            result: (unknown)
        report:  (DQ_ConceptualConsistency)
            measureDescription:  Datasets were visually compared internally and externally (with other overlapping datasets and satellite images and maps) in ESRI ArcGIS for identification of anomalous elevations or data inconsistencies. Where elevation inconsistencies occurred, the most recent and/or highest resolution data set was selected for use in that region. Elevations in the older and/or lower-resolution datasets were deleted prior to building the DEM.

        lineage:  (LI_Lineage)
            processStep:  (LE_ProcessStep)
                description:  All datasets obtained by NGDC were converted to common horizontal and vertical datums of NAD 83 geographic and NAVD 88, respectively, using FME and VDatum tool. They were also converted to common file format, ESRI point shapefiles, for visualization and inspection.

                description:  Datasets were visually inspected with ArcGIS for identification and editing of data anomalies. Datasets were then compared with overlapping datasets to ensure data consistency.

            processStep:  (LE_ProcessStep)
                description:  xyz files of the bathymetric data were surfaced using GMT's 'surface' tool onto a 1 arc-second grid that interpolated to fill empty cells. Points extracted every 10 meters along the coastline were also included to ensure that the bathymetric grid reached zero at the coast. The resulting Arc ASCII grid was imported into ArcGIS and clipped to the coastline to remove values over land.

                  DateTime:  2009-12-18T00:00:00
            processStep:  (LE_ProcessStep)
                description:  xyz files for each input dataset were gridded using MB-System's 'mbgrid' tool, which utilizes a high-tension spline interpolation method to fill grid cells with no input elevation values. Preferential weighting was given to more recent, higher-accuracy datasets. Gridding was performed in quadrants, each with a 5% data buffer. The grids were imported in ArcGIS and seamlessly merged to create the NAVD 88 DEM.

                  DateTime:  2010-01-22T00:00:00
            processStep:  (LE_ProcessStep)
                description:  The NAVD 88 was quantitatively evaluated by comparing with source datasets and with elevation values extracted from NGS geodetic monuments. It was visually evaluated by converting to UTM-zone coordinates (units of meters horizontally and vertically) and then creating a slope grid to identify gridding artifacts in the NAVD 88 DEM.
