Extremely high energy neutrinos are attenuated by the materials surrounding the neutrino detector. Topography data can provides spatial distribution of material and become an essential factor in high energy neutrino experiment, especially for the earth skimming neutrino experiment. This study introduced the Antarctica topography data, including composite layers of rock, ice, and water, to investigating the topography effect for near horizontal neutrino events. We also apply the different neutrino experiment setups( balloon, surface, and underground types) into the simulation to estimate the topography effect for neutrino observation.
