Water-Depth Data

New (October 2014)! Daily water-depth files are now available! Download the files below.

Users can obtain two types of water-depth data using EDEN:


Daily Maps of Water Depth

Example of EDEN water-depth map

Example EDEN water-depth map.

Users can download daily water-depth maps 1) in the table below and 2) through the EDEN THREDDS Data Server. The EDEN project also provides a tool, Depth&DaysSinceDry, that allows users to create their own daily water-depth maps by using the EDEN water surface and ground elevation model (DEM) netCDF files. Daily water-depth maps are computed by subtracting the ground elevation from the daily water level for each EDEN grid cell (400 meters by 400 meters).

EDEN surfaces are served mainly as NetCDF (Network Common Data Form) files, a set of freely-distributed software libraries and machine-independent binary data formats that support the creation, access, and sharing of large array-oriented scientific data. Each file contains 3 months (one quarter-year) of daily datasets. For example, the data for every day in 2002 will be stored in 4 files: 2002_q1_depth.nc, 2002_q2_depth.nc, 2002_q3_depth.nc, and 2002_q4_depth.nc.


 

Water-Depth NetCDF Files

File naming conventions:

  • v# = version of surface water model (v1 or v2),
  • r# = release of surface (r1 or r2),
  • prov = provisional,
  • rt = real-time

New: You may download a year's worth of data all at once. Simply click the link below for each year. Because of file size limits, the most you can download at one time is a year. If you need to download several year's worth of data at once, please contact Heather Henkel (hhenkel@usgs.gov) and other arrangements can be made.
