These data were generated to examine the sensitivity of storm response in the XBeach model to varying antecedent topography of a barrier island. The merged, one-dimensional (1D) topographic and bathymetric profile for the baseline idealized profile is included in the download file, Initial_Model_Baseline.zip, as a Network Common Data Form (NetCDF) file. This dataset consists of Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) metadata and a NetCDF file, Initial_Model_Baseline.nc, containing the following variables: coordinates of the model domain (Easting and Northing) and the initial bathymetry/topography elevation (z) of the baseline model profile. All other NetCDF files contain the same variables but for a modified version of the baseline profile (last part of file name corresponds to modified profile characteristic).

|Data format:||Initial_Model_Baseline.nc is a NetCDF file that contains the initial model topographic and bathymetric elevations and coordinate information for the baseline profile, in meters. All other NetCDF files are the initial model grids used for each modified profile (last part of file name corresponds to modified profile characteristic). in format NetCDF (version NetCDF version 188.8.131.52)|
