Perspective view of the edge of the carbonate platform. Viewing direction is from the NE to the SW. White arrows point to the boundary between multibeam bathymetry and single-beam bathymetry. Black arrows point to fissures in the seafloor. Dotted lines are debris toes. The locations of a previously suggested strike-slip fault (SPRSFZ) and the largest free-air gravity anomaly on Earth (-380 mGal) are shown. Stippled textures (e.g., near SPRSFZ) are multibeam acquisition artifacts. Click on image to return to Tsunami main page.
