Global distribution of nearshore slopes
datasetposted on 03.05.2019 by Panagiotis Athanasiou
Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
Global nearshore slope estimations using an interpolated MERIT+GEBCO merged dataset with the Open Street Maps (OSM) coastline as Mean Sea Level (MSL). The slope was calculated from elevation profiles that were created by transects perpendicular to the OSM coastline, positioned every 1 km in the alongshore direction. The depths of closure that were used for the slope estimation are also provided.
