Bathymetry contour lines

The dataset comprises bathymetry contour lines derived from two sources: GEBCO 15 arc-second global grid for areas more than 20 m, and Satellite-Derived Bathymetry for areas 0-20 m depth. The SDB bathymetry contours are valid only for the Turks and Caicos area.

Lineage The bathymetry contour lines were derived from GEBCO 2019 Global 15 arc-second grid with 100 m step. However due to errors in depth for shalow water of Turks and Caicos Bank all the contour lines with the depth -100 and more were manually removed from this area
