Figure 47. Detailed perspective view of the bathymetry looking north across the sand-wave field south of Nonamesset Shoal from the digital terrain model produced during National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration survey H11077 of Woods Hole, Massachusetts. Line shows location of transect; cross section shows scaled bathymetry and that sand-wave asymmetry indicates net westward transport in this part of Vineyard Sound. Location of view is shown in figure 19.
