                name:  NOAA Tsunami Inundation DEMs
                issueIdentification:  Rarotonga 1 arc-second Coastal DEM
        abstract:  NOAA's National Centers for Environmental Information 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.
        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.

                        description:  Shaded relief visualization of a global seamless bathymetry/topography mosaic of digital elevation models at NOAA/NCEI.
                        function:  (CI_OnLineFunctionCode) information
                role:  (CI_RoleCode) publisher
        abstract:  The DEM Global Mosaic is an image service providing access to bathymetric/topographic digital elevation models stewarded at NOAA's National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI), along with the global GEBCO_2014 grid: http://www.gebco.net/data_and_products/gridded_bathymetry_data. NCEI builds and distributes high-resolution, coastal digital elevation models (DEMs) that integrate ocean bathymetry and land topography to support NOAA's mission to understand and predict changes in Earth's environment, and conserve and manage coastal and marine resources to meet our Nation's economic, social, and environmental needs. They can be used for modeling of coastal processes (tsunami inundation, storm surge, sea-level rise, contaminant dispersal, etc.), ecosystems management and habitat research, coastal and marine spatial planning, and hazard mitigation and community preparedness. This service is a general-purpose global, seamless bathymetry/topography mosaic. It combines DEMs from a variety of near sea-level vertical datums, such as mean high water (MHW), mean sea level (MSL), and North American Vertical Datum of 1988 (NAVD88). Elevation values have been rounded to the nearest meter, with DEM cell sizes going down to 1 arc-second. Higher-resolution DEMs, with greater elevation precision, are available in the companion NAVD88: http://noaa.maps.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=e9ba2e7afb7d46cd878b34aa3bfce042 and MHW: http://noaa.maps.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=3bc7611c1d904a5eaf90ecbec88fa799 mosaics. By default, the DEMs are drawn in order of cell size, with higher-resolution grids displayed on top of lower-resolution grids. If overlapping DEMs have the same resolution, the newer one is shown. Please see NCEI's corresponding DEM Footprints map service: http://noaa.maps.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=d41f39c8a6684c54b62c8f1ab731d5ad for polygon footprints and more information about the individual DEMs used to create this composite view. In this visualization, the elevations/depths are displayed using this color ramp: http://gis.ngdc.noaa.gov/viewers/images/dem_color_scale.png.

        abstract:  A map service showing the location and coverage of land and seafloor digital elevation models (DEMs) available from NOAA's National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI). NCEI builds and distributes high-resolution, coastal digital elevation models (DEMs) that integrate ocean bathymetry and land topography to support NOAA's mission to understand and predict changes in Earth's environment, and conserve and manage coastal and marine resources to meet our Nation's economic, social, and environmental needs. They can be used for modeling of coastal processes (tsunami inundation, storm surge, sea-level rise, contaminant dispersal, etc.), ecosystems management and habitat research, coastal and marine spatial planning, and hazard mitigation and community preparedness. Layers available in the map service: Layers 1-4: DEMs by Category (includes various DEMs, both hosted at NCEI, and elsewhere on the web); Layers 6-11: NCEI DEM Projects (DEMs hosted at NCEI, color-coded by project); Layer 12: All NCEI Bathymetry DEMs (All bathymetry or bathy-topo DEMs hosted at NCEI).

            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: 30 meters. Positional accuracy of input topographic datasets limits accuracy of corresponding cell values in DEM. LINZ topography: 1:25,000; total station surveyed topography: 0.1 meter; RTK GPS surveyed topography: 0.1 meter; digitized topography: n/a; GPS surveyed topography: assumed less than 1 meter. Bathymetry: 30 meters. DEM cell-value relative-contribution factors: Lidar: 100; Topographic surveys: 1000 to 100. Bathymetry: less than 1 meter to a few kilometers. Positional accuracy of input bathymetric datasets limits accuracy of corresponding cell values in DEM. RTK GPS surveyed bathymetry: 0.1 meter; multibeam data: 1 meter; single beam bathymetry: 0.01 meter; trackline bathymetry: 25 meters to greater than 100 meters; digitized charts: less than 1 meter; digitized bathymetry: about 1 meter; GEBCO bathymetric DEM: 30 arc-seconds. DEM cell-value relative-contribution factors: Multibeam: 1000; single beam: 1000; trackline: 100; bathymetric DEM: 50; Bathymetric pre-surface: 100.

            nameOfMeasure:  Vertical Positional Accuracy Report
            evaluationMethodDescription:  The vertical accuracy of bathymetric and topographic features in the DEM is dependent upon the accuracy of the input datasets used to determine corresponding cell values. Topography: 10 meters. Vertical accuracy of input topographic datasets limits accuracy of corresponding cells in DEM. DEM cell-value relative-contribution factors: Topographic surveys: 1000 to 100. Bathymetry: less than 1 meter to 5% of water depth. Vertical accuracy of input bathymetric datasets limits accuracy of corresponding cells in DEM. RTK GPS surveyed bathymetry: 0.1 meter; multibeam data: about 1 meter to 10 meters; single beam bathymetry: 0.1 meter +/-0.1% of depth; trackline bathymetry: 10 meters +/-0.1% of depth; digitized charts: 25 to 100 meters; digitized bathymetry: about 0.1 meter; GEBCO bathymetric DEM: varies due to sparseness of source data, but generally 1 meter to 5% of water depth. DEM cell-value relative-contribution factors: Multibeam: 1000; single beam: 1000; trackline: 100; bathymetric DEM: 50; Bathymetric pre-surface: 100. Gridding interpolation to determine cell values between sparse soundings in deep water degrades the vertical accuracy of corresponding elevations.

        report:  (DQ_ConceptualConsistency)
            measureDescription:  Datasets were visually compared internally and externally (with other overlapping datasets and satellite images and maps) and statistically 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. Clipping of lower resolution datasets was performed in proximity to higher resolution data or newer data. Elevations in the older and/or lower-resolution datasets were superseded prior to building the DEM.
