Summary

The model input and output of topography and bathymetry values resulting from forecast simulations of coupled modeling scenarios occurring between 2015 and 2025 at Dauphin Island, Alabama, and described in U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Open-File Report 2020–1001 (https://doi.org/10.3133/ofr20201001), are provided here. For further information regarding model input generation and visualization of model output topography and bathymetry, refer to Mickey and others (2020).
