stairstep: Boolean

If stairstep is 1 then the vertical grid spacing does not change in the horizontal. If stairstep is 0, then partial-stepping is employed and the height of the bottom cell is set such that the bottom face of the cell coincides with the actual value of the depth. Otherwise (when stairstep=1), the bottom face of of the lowermost cell is always greater than the actual depth.
