Point Barrow, Alaska and Vicinity Bathymetry



This data set contains bathymetry data for Point Barrow, Alaska, and its vicinity. A bathymetry grid was interpolated from depth soundings measured in meters below mean lower low water (MLLW) and contours that were digitized from a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) nautical chart (28 July 1990 1:47,943-scale, chart #16082). The data set includes the derived bathymetry grid, the depth soundings map, and the contour map.
