Summary
Abstract: [Adapted from the online documentation]

The Numeric Data Package (NDP-043C) consists of a digital data base
that may be used to identify coastlines along the U.S. West Coast that
are at risk to sea-level rise. This data base integrates point, line,
and polygon data for the U.S. West Coast into 0.25 degree latitude by
0.25 degree longitude grid cells and into 1:2,000,000 digitized line
segments ... View entire text

Quality An important part of the data packaging process at the CDIAC is the
quality assurance (QA) of the data before its distribution. Data
received at CDIAC are rarely in perfect condition for immediate
distribution, regardless of source. CDIAC staff members examine the
data for completeness, reasonableness, and accuracy. The QA process is
an important component in the value-added concept of assuring
accurate, usable information for researchers. For details on the QA
performed on this data set, see the documentation file at:
