NOAA Office for Coastal Management Coastal Inundation Digital Elevation Model: San Francisco Bay/Monterey (CA) WFO - Contra Costa, San Francisco, Alameda, San Mateo, and Santa Clara Counties

This digital elevation model (DEM) is a part of a series of DEMs produced for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Office for Coastal Management's Sea Level Rise and Coastal Flooding Impacts Viewer. The DEMs created for this project were developed using the NOAA National Weather Service's Weather Forecast Office (WFO) boundaries. Because the WFO boundaries can cover large areas, the WFO DEM was divided into smaller DEMs to ensure more manageable file sizes. The San Francisco Bay/Monterey (CA) WFO DEM was split into three smaller DEMs. They are divided along county lines and are: 1. San Francisco Bay/Monterey (CA) WFO - Santa Cruz and Monterey Counties 2. San Francisco Bay/Monterey (CA) WFO - Contra Costa, San Francisco, Alameda, San Mateo, and Santa Clara Counties 3. San Francisco Bay/Monterey (CA) WFO - Sonoma, Marin, Napa, and Solano Counties This metadata record describes the DEM for the San Francisco Bay/Monterey (CA) WFO - Contra Costa, San Francisco, Alameda, San Mateo, and Santa Clara Counties. The DEM includes the best available lidar data known to exist at the time of DEM creation for the coastal areas of Contra Costa, San Francisco, Alameda, San Mateo, and Santa Clara Counties, that met project specifications. The DEM is derived from LiDAR data collected for the California Coastal Conservancy, NOAA and the United States Geological Survey between 2009 and 2011. Hydrographic breaklines used in the creation of the DEM were obtained from the California Coastal Conservancy, NOAA or the USGS. The DEMs are hydro flattened such that water elevations are less than or equal to 0 meters. The DEM is referenced vertically to the North American Vertical Datum of 1988 (NAVD88) with vertical units of meters and horizontally to the North American Datum of 1983 (NAD83). The resolution of the DEM is approximately 5 meters.
