Bottom photographs showing top surfaces of erosional outliers of foreset beds associated with the Eastham outwash plain. Although draped by fine sand, preservation of these blocks indicates more cohesive sediments comprise the interiors. A) Skate and sand dollars on the undulating bottom at station CC49. B) Tracks preserved in the finer grained sediments at station CC50. Note crab partly visible in upper right. Long dimension of the sea-floor area shown is approximately 0.8 m. See Figure 27 for station locations.
