U.S. Geological Survey
These data were generated for the XBeach model to examine the influence of bottom friction on barrier island morphology during two storm events. Katrina_Default_Friction.zip is a dataset that consists of Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) metadata and a Network Common Data Form (NetCDF) file containing the following variables: coordinates of the model grid (Easting and Northing) and the final bathymetric/topographic (z) model elevation values, in meters, for the Hurricane Katrina default friction scenario.
Are there legal restrictions on access or use of the data?
