Dear WRF Users,
Where can I get the 1*1 deg topo data for the planet? I have seen higher resolution, but the code I am using for tracking storms needs 1*1 Degree and I want to see if there is such data available.

Subject: [Wrf-users] Surface area of domain
Greetings fellow WRF-ers,
I am interested in obtaining the surface area of my domain. I can do a crude calculation, based on the number of grid cells, grid cell resolution, etc., but I am wondering if there is an actual WRF output variable that better takes into account the varying lat/lon distance (my domain encompasses the entire US, parts of Mexico, Canada, etc.).
Looking forward to any advice.
