Great Barrier Reef and Coral Sea bathymetry
This dataset provides the new high-resolution bathymetry model of the Great Barrier Reef and Coral Sea, called gbr100 (Project 3DGBR internal link here). The 100 metre-resolution gridded bathymetry dataset covers an area of about 3,000,000 km2, from the Gulf of Papua to northern New South Wales, and easterly into the deep Coral Sea. This page provides the data in a range of formats for public download.
