ABOUT_IBCAO is the jdata module of jLab.

 ABOUT_IBCAO  International Bathymetric Chart of the Arctic Ocean topography.
    IBCAO.MAT and IBCAO.NC contain Artic topography data at a resolution
    of 30 arc second, or 1/120 of a degree, from the International 
    Bathymetric Chart of the Arctic Ocean (IBCAO) Version 3.0.
    In Matlab, LOAD IBCAO for the Matlab version, or NCLOAD IBCAO for the 
    NetCdf version, leads to a structure containing the following fields:
        ibcao.about     Pointer to this document  
        ibcao.lat       Array of latitudes         [3121 x 1] 
        ibcao.lon       Array of longitudes        [43201 x 1]
        ibcao.topo      Matrix of topography       [3121 x 43201]
    Typing 'use ibcao' maps these fields into variables in the current
    TOPO is in units of kilometers and is positive for above sea level, 
    and negative for below sea level.
    IBCAO.MAT is a Matlab version, while IBCAO.NC is a NetCDF version. 
    These both contain identical data.
    IBCAO is distributed as a part of JDATA, a supplement to the 
    software toolbox JLAB, and is available at http://www.jmlilly.net.
    Topography at lower latitudes can be found from the Smith and Sandwell
    dataset, see READTOPO.  A merged 1/6th degree version of both datasets,
    called JTOPO, is is distributed with JLAB; see ABOUT_JTOPO for details.

    Dataset creation
    For completeness, the m-file ABOUT_IBCAO also contains steps used in 
    the creation of IBCAO.MAT and IBCAO.NC. If you wish to do this 
    yourself, with both JLAB and IBCAO_V3_30arcsec_RR.grd on your search 
    path, typing 'about_ibcao --create' will recreate IBCAO.
    'about_ibcao --f' generates the sample figure shown above.
    Usage: about_ibcao
           about_ibcao --create
