Summary
Abstract: ETOPO5 is a collection of several gridded elevation data sets, combined into a single, global coverage. The data sets are of low resolution and accuracy, and therefore are useful for only the most general descriptions of polar topography. ETOPO5 gridded elevation data for the Earth north of 50 degrees North were provided to NSIDC by the National Geophysical Data Center.
