Investigations of coastal change and coastal resources often require continuous elevation profiles from the seafloor to coastal terrestrial landscapes. Differences in elevation data collection in the terrestrial and marine environments result in separate elevation products that may not share a vertical datum. This data release contains the compilation of multiple elevation products into a continuous digital elevation model at a resolution of 3-arcseconds (approximately 90 meters) from the terrestrial landscape to the seafloor for the contiguous U.S. and portions of Mexico and Canada, focused on the coastal interface. All datasets were converted to a consistent horizontal datum, the North American Datum of 1983, but the native vertical datum for each dataset was not adjusted. Artifacts in the source elevation products were identified visually and replaced with other available elevation products when possible, corrected using various spatial tools, or otherwise marked for future correction.

Defne, Z., Ganju, N.K., 2017, Wetland data layers derived from Barnegat Bay Little Egg Harbor hydrodynamic model: U.S. Geological Survey data release . Online at 10.5066/F7K64GZT
As part of the Hurricane Sandy Science Plan, the U.S. Geological Survey has started a Wetland Synthesis Project to expand National Assessment of Coastal Change Hazards and forecast products to coastal wetlands. The intent is to provide federal, state, and local managers with tools to estimate the vulnerability and ecosystem service potential of coastal wetlands. For this purpose, the response and resilience of coastal wetlands to physical factors need to be assessed in terms of the ensuing change to their vulnerability and ecosystem services. Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge (EBFNWR), New Jersey, was selected as a pilot study area. As part of this data synthesis effort, hydrodynamic modeling of Barnegat Bay Little Egg Harbor (BBLEH) has been used to create the following wetland data layers in Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge (EBFNWR), New Jersey: 1) Residence time, 2) salinity change, 3) salinity exposure change, and 4) sediment supply. The residence time layer was based on the hydrodynamic and particle tracking modeling by Defne and Ganju (2015). For this data layer, the residence time map of the estuary has been projected over the EBFNWR salt marshes. The rest of the layers were derived from the BBLEH hydrodynamic modeling for the Hurricane Sandy period that spans from 10/27/2012 to 11/04/2012 (Defne and Ganju, 2016a). Changes in salinity and sediment concentrations over the salt marshes because of the storm-induced coastal flooding were modeled. The results are summarized over the previously determined conceptual salt marsh unit polygons (Defne and Ganju, 2016b).

Ruppel, C., Pohlman, J., Casso, M., 2017, Data and calculations to support the study of the sea-air flux of methane and carbon dioxide on the West Spitsbergen margin in June 2014: U.S. Geological Survey data release . Online at 10.5066/F7M906V0
A critical question for assessing global greenhouse gas budgets is how much of the methane that escapes from seafloor cold seep sites to the overlying water column eventually crosses the sea-air interface and reaches the atmosphere. The issue is particularly important in Arctic Ocean waters since rapid warming there increases the likelihood that gas hydrate--an ice-like form of methane and water stable at particular pressure and temperature conditions within marine sediments--will break down and release its methane to the overlying ocean. Some researchers have even proposed the possibility of an Arctic methane catastrophe characterized by wholesale breakdown of gas hydrates in marine sediments and release of the methane to the atmosphere as climate warms. This dataset collected on the West Spitsbergen margin during US Geological Survey Coastal and Marine Geology Program Field Activity 2014-013-FA carried out in conjunction with the University of Tromso provides 30-second-gridded methane and carbon dioxide concentrations in near-surface seawater and the atmospheric marine boundary layer, carbon-13 isotopic concentrations in methane and carbon dioxide in the near-surface waters, and environmental parameters (e.g., seawater salinity, wind speed, water and air temperatures). Calculations required to determine the sea-air flux of methane and carbon dioxide are also provided. released april2017

Andrews, B.D., Baldwin, W.E., Sampson, D.W., Schwab, W.C., , Continuous bathymetry and elevation models of the Massachusetts coastal zone and continental shelf.: U.S. Geological Survey data release
The Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management (CZM) and United States Geological Survey (USGS) Woods Hole Science Center initiated the Seafloor Mapping Cooperative in 2003 to address the need for acquiring datasets on the spatial distribution of benthic resources to help resource management. The goal of the cooperative is to comprehensively map the topography and geology of the seafloor in Massachusetts. To date, approximately 2400 square kilometers of the seafloor environment is mapped within the Massachusetts Coastal Zone under this partnership. See https://woodshole.er.usgs.gov/project-pages/coastal_mass/ for status of mapping products. The state of Massachusetts required a continuous surface of bathymetry and elevation composed of the most recent and highest resolution data publicly available to support the Ocean Management Plan.
