Bathymetric Grid for the region 60E to 90E, 48S to 70S
Entry ID: kerg_ant_bathy

Abstract: This dataset is a bathymetric grid of the region 60E to 90E and 48.45S to 70S, created in a geographic coordinate system based on a WGS84 horizontal datum. The grid has a cell size of 0.005 degrees.

Most of the work involved creating a bathymetric grid of the region 60E to 90E and 55S to 70S which was generated from the latest available multibeam swath bathymetry, fisheries' surveys and satellite ... View entire text
