This dataset provides the high-resolution bathymetry model for the Kerguelen Plateau and south-west Indian Ocean, called kerg_dem (short for Kergulen digital elevation model). The 100 metre-resolution gridded bathymetry dataset covers an area of about 736,000 km2, which also includes the land elevation coverage for the Heard and McDonald Islands, and Kerguelen Island. This page provides the data in a range of formats for public download.
