    String summary "We have created a bathymetric digital elevation model (DEM) with nominal 1-km grid spacing over the domain 45ºN-80ºN and 130ºE-120ºW. With the exception of a portion of the outer Siberian shelves, the DEM is based solely on ship sounding datapoints, including Electronic Navigation Chart (ENC) point soundings, research vessel underway soundings, multibeam swath mapping datasets and digitized point soundings from paper nautical charts. Please note that in some regions the 1-km coverage is resolved and in many regions 1 km is not resolved. Land Elevations: In order to assist those who have interest in employing a combined bathymetric-topographic DEM, we have spliced the ocean DEM grid with land elevations from the Global Land One-kilometer Base Elevation (GLOBE) 1-km open source DEM. Because the GLOBE DEM is based on a pixel registration grid, we have employed a bilinear interpolation to re-register to gridline nodes. Please see the GLOBE web site for detailed documentation, use policies and copyright information. The GLOBE DEM use citation is listed below. Bathymetry in the Arctic: The ARDEMv2.0 grid employs depths from the International Bathymetric Chart of the Arctic Ocean (IBCAO) for the region within the polygon bounded by the following points: 130ºE/76.8ºN, 154ºE/76.8ºN, 154ºE/74ºN, 172ºE/74ºN, 172ºE/72ºN, 186ºE/72ºN, 186ºE/71.5ºN, 198ºE/71.5ºN, 198ºE/68ºN, 240ºE/68ºN, 240ºE/80ºN, 130ºE/80ºN. This region encompasses the northern Chukchi Sea, the Beaufort Sea, and the northern East Siberian Sea. See the IBCAO reference information below. Grid Details: Data is gridded to a regular 30 second latitude by 60 second longitude grid (nominally ~ 1 km), with gridline node registration. Software to to read, reproject, subsample and plot this dataset is freely available at the Generic Mapping Tools (GMT) website. ";

Using griddap to Request Data and Graphs from Gridded Datasets

griddap lets you request a data subset, graph, or map from a gridded dataset (for example, sea surface temperature data from a satellite), via a specially formed URL. griddap uses the OPeNDAP (external link) Data Access Protocol (DAP) (external link) and its projection constraints (external link).

The URL specifies what you want: the dataset, a description of the graph or the subset of the data, and the file type for the response.

griddap request URLs must be in the form{?query}
For example,[(2002-06-01T09:00:00Z)][(-89.99):1000:(89.99)][(-179.99):1000:(180.0)]
Thus, the query is often a data variable name (e.g., analysed_sst), followed by [(start):stride:(stop)] (or a shorter variation of that) for each of the variable's dimensions (for example, [time][latitude][longitude]).

For details, see the griddap Documentation.
