Provides a nearshore hazard map of inundation based on the 1975 Kalapana tsunami. Data are gridded at approximately 30-m resolution referenced to the WGS84 coordinate system and use a vertical datum of mean sea level (MSL). This shock-capturing, dispersive wave model computes tsunami generation, propagation, and inundation for complex flow patterns in shelf and reef environments. It has been validated with analytical, laboratory, and field benchmarks and is approved by the National Tsunami Hazard Mitigation Program. These hazard maps cover tsunamis only; other potential hazards such as wind waves and swells would be additive to the inundation described by these data.";

Using griddap to Request Data and Graphs from Gridded Datasets

griddap lets you request a data subset, graph, or map from a gridded dataset (for example, sea surface temperature data from a satellite), via a specially formed URL. griddap uses the OPeNDAP (external link) Data Access Protocol (DAP) (external link) and its projection constraints (external link).

The URL specifies what you want: the dataset, a description of the graph or the subset of the data, and the file type for the response.

griddap request URLs must be in the form
https://coastwatch.pfeg.noaa.gov/erddap/griddap/datasetID.fileType{?query}
For example,
https://coastwatch.pfeg.noaa.gov/erddap/griddap/jplMURSST41.htmlTable?analysed_sst[(2002-06-01T09:00:00Z)][(-89.99):1000:(89.99)][(-179.99):1000:(180.0)]
Thus, the query is often a data variable name (e.g., analysed_sst), followed by [(start):stride:(stop)] (or a shorter variation of that) for each of the variable's dimensions (for example, [time][latitude][longitude]).

For details, see the griddap Documentation.
