Figure 10. Detailed sidescan-sonar image of an area containing scarps, which show a sharp contrast in backscatter that continues along most of the southern slope of the eastern bathymetric high. Sand waves, oriented generally east-west, and higher backscatter are observed north of the scarp. Trawl marks can be seen in the area of moderate backscatter south of the scarp.
