Maps and Profiles of Offshore Topo-bathymetric Transects along Peak Wave Directions for the State of Hawaii Maui County Coastal Roads Report

Published: 1 March 2024| Version 1 | DOI: 10.17632/4dfxjjp53w.1


This database consists of a series of maps that depict the spatial locations of offshore topo-bathymetric transects along the peak wave directions and accompanying profiles that present elevation and depth values along these transects on the islands of Maui and Molokai. Transects are identified by Francis et al. (2024a). State of Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) state routes and Maui County Roads are acquired from HDOT (2023) and MC (2022). Shoreline datasets are provided by NGS (2017). Elevation and depth values along the transects are referenced to local mean sea level (LMSL) and are sampled from the Continuously Updated Digital Elevation Models (CUDEMs) developed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA’s) National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) (CIRES, 2014a, 2014b; Amante et al., 2023). Details of the data sources and methods can be found in the 'Maps and Profiles of Offshore Topo-bathymetric Transects along Peak Wave Directions-README.docx' .
