Purpose


This function reads the global NGDC TerrainBase 5-minute global topographic

topo = TOPO_READ_5_MINUTE_KPB([infile])

Inputs


infile : optional input file name. By default the function attempts to
read the file whose name is stored in the system variable
!TOPO_5_MINUTE_KPB
DEFSYSV, '!TOPO_5_MINUTE_KPB', '/bowman_lib/topo/data/5_minute_land_ocean/tbase.bin'

Output


topo : structure containing an array with topographic and bathymetric data,
longitude andlatitude coordinates, and the areas of the grid boxes.
Topographic data are stored as 2-byte integers. Note: to save
storage, the grid cell areas are returned as a 1-D latitude-dependent
array.
