This GIS layer contains the model grid used for calculation of waves and currents in the tidal scenarios used to investigate hydrodynamic variability in the northern Gulf of Mexico. This data layer is intended to illustrate the complete model grid over which calculations were performed. The analysis results, which are contained in other data layers, are only presented at those locations where model output exist (e.g., "wet" grid cells, as opposed to "dry" grid cells in the model representing land).
Are there legal restrictions on access or use of the data?
