Figure 9. Sidescan-sonar image of the study area. Dark tones represent lower backscatter and generally finer grained sediment; light tones represent higher backscatter and generally coarser grained sediment. Light and dark bands oriented northeast-southwest are artifacts of the sidescan-sonar processing.
