This page was established in September of 2009 for the use of researchers
at the University of Washington (Department of Earth and Space Sciences)
and other institutions (e.g. University of Tennessee at Knoxville) to
share data on the Tsangpo/Siang River region.
Earlier work can be seen at
Bhutan, and in
Harvey is working on River slopes
This section is under revision 10/16/09
It contains a directory for uploaded data
This directory is automatically indexed. The contributor or creator will
eventually link to the data, with explanations, from the directory
I propose a bounding rectangle of 81.96,27.7 to 97.13,31.3 degrees. This
includes (with margins) everything upstream of a point 50 km downstream
from the mountains.
(I measure bounds on a grid, not a lattice.
Coordinates are the the corners of the corner cells. There is a half-cell
shift in teh ASTER DEM, so corners are 81.959861,27.699861 and
This is where Harvey will put the data that he promised you.
- HydroSHEDS 3" conditioned SRTM DEM
- SRTM 3" DEM from CGIAR version 4.
- ASTER 1" DEM
- River profiles
- Keyhole images
