3D Paleotopography and Paleobathymetry

The 3D globes shown above were rendered using new digital topographic and bathymetric data sets that model paleo-elevation and paleo-bathymetry.  These digital datasets  have a spatial resolution of less than 1/10 of a degree and a vertical resolution of approximately 40 meters. 

For information concerning the availability of these data sets contact as at:
