Basin and Range Province, Western US, USGS Grids, #1

These grid files were used to produce gravity and basin depth maps of the Basin and Range Province, western United States. The maps show gravity values and modeled basin depths in this area. The data were compiled by the U.S. Geological Survey, Denver, Colorado. This data base was received in June, 1995. For further information see the readme.txt file in this directory(data\grids\basinrng), and the "Gravity and Basin-Depth Maps of the Basin and Range Province, Western United States", by R.W. Saltus and R.C. Jachens, Map GP-1012.

Supplemental Information
In addition to giving the Bounding Coordinates in latitude and longitude, the limits of coverage for the gridded and projected data sets are also given in units of measure of the projection. This is usually the distance from a central meridian (the x-coordinate), or base latitude (the y-coordinate), in meters or kilometers of the given projection. For this data set those boundaries are:The Western-most boundary: -530 kilometersThe Eastern-most boundary: 476 kilometersThe Northern-most boundary: 1232 kilometersThe Southern-most boundary: 42 kilometers
Purpose To provide easy access to global and regional gravity data and related models for scientific studies.
