ETOP05 Elevation Data for Areas Greater than 50 degrees NorthEntry ID: ARCSS016
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.

Quality The conservation areas have been verified and aligned to either hydrological
units or ecoregions. This reflects the revision and review as submitted for
Federal review in September, 2005. The plan will be updated again at 5-year
intervals. The completeness is limited to species observed so is incomplete.
Some species are more easily observed and surveyed that others.
