Terre Adelie and George V margin bathymetry

This dataset provides the high-resolution bathymetry model for the Terre Adelie and George V continental margin, East Antarctica, called GVdem (short for George V digital elevation model). The 100 metre-resolution gridded bathymetry dataset covers an area of about 302,000 km2, which also includes the land and ice sheet elevation coverage. This page provides the data in a range of formats for public download.
