FLDAS Elevation

The FLDAS model uses SRTM30 as its elevation input. SRTM30 is a near-global digital elevation model (DEM) comprising a combination of data from the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission, flown in February, 2000 and the U.S. Geological Survey GTOPO30 data set. It can be considered to be either an SRTM data set enhanced with GTOPO30, or as an upgrade to GTOPO30.
