Pseudo-colored map of the sea floor off Chatham showing combined bathymetry and backscatter intensity. Predominantly sandy areas have low backscatter (blue); predominantly gravelly areas have moderate backscatter (green). Large sandwaves trend toward the northeast and have higher backscatter (red) and coarser sediments on their southeast-facing slopes. Inset shows map location (blue polygon) within survey area (red polygon).
