distance to coast dataset

by peland » Fri Aug 11, 2023 9:03 am America/New_York

Hi Guys,

I downloaded this long ago (very useful!) and now I'd like to cite it, but it seems the old URL is out of date - I Ecosia'd it and https://catalog.data.gov/dataset/distance-to-nearest-coastline-0-01-degree-grid-ocean looked promising, but none of the links worked except the last, a THREDDS link from Hawaii https://pae-paha.pacioos.hawaii.edu/thredds/ncss/dist2coast_1deg_ocean/dataset.html. This seems like a rather roundabout citation! Is there a more direct one? If so, maybe you should think about making it more accessible on your data page.

Cheers, Peter Land

The page didn't move far: https://oceancolor.gsfc.nasa.gov/resources/docs/distfromcoast/
It was never really easy to find, but I agree it is now less so. We'll see what we can do to bubble it up a bit.
