Figure 10. Interpretation of sidescan-sonar imagery of the study area. Sand waves are visible across much of the study area, and boulders are scattered throughout. Two lines of benches cross the study area, large areas of high backscatter are located mostly in the south, and low backscatter and trawl marks are seen in the deeper waters.
