Weddell Sea

Data set coverage: 60°S to 66°S; 75°W to 15°W, 66°S to 79°S; 65°W to 2°E

Data set provider: Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research (AWI)

Supplied data set: Gridded data set for the Weddell Sea region at 30 arc-second intervals, based on the Bathymetric Chart of the Weddell Sea (BCWS). The BCWS is a 1:1,000,000 map series plus a 1:3,000,000 master sheet based on compilations of bathymetric data in the Weddell Sea.
