High-resolution visible satellite imagery (Quickbird) was acquired and a physics-based model inversion process used to estimate water column depth. The methodology for this project and assessments of accuracy are extensively report by Botha (2012) and Botha et al. (2013).

This data collection is a product is funded and supported by the Australian Government through the Pacific Australian Climate Change Science and Adaptation Planning Programme (PACCSAP). PACCSAP was funded by Department of Foreign Affair & Trade, managed by the Department of the Environment and the science was delivered by the partnership between CSIRO and the Bureau of Meteorology. This output was produced as part of PACCSAP Project 1.4.4: Understanding the effect of climate variability and climate change on extreme sea levels and coastal impacts.
