Coastal Ocean Modeling Tools
LiveOcean Architecture Notes

Coastline files

Description: mat files of lat and lon vectors (decimal degrees, with lon from -180 to 180). There are three final files:

  • pnw_coast_detailed.mat (best resolution, esp. in Puget Sound, but no Canada!)
  • pnw_coast_regional.mat (includes Canada, but less resolution)
  • pnw_coast_combined.mat (both together, with annoying overlap in Puget Sound)
  • pnw_rivers.mat (river paths, at low resolution, not too accurate)

NOTE: you can add one of these to a plot using the function pandora/Z_functions/Z_addcoast.m.
