Simulated SWOT L2 River and Lake Vectors for Consecutive Passes over North America
This animation depicts simulated surface water features for a series of consecutive SWOT passes over North America. They closely resemble Level 2 terrestrial hydrology datasets that will be generated by SWOT. The feature datasets are stored in shapefiles containing river reaches (polylines; approximately 10 km long) and nodes (points; approximately 200 m spacing) identified in the Prior River Database (PRD), as well as lake features identified in Prior Lake Database (PLD).
