Figure 11. Detailed sidescan-sonar image showing erosional outliers in the northwestern part of the study area. Erosional outliers are characterized by low backscatter, presumably representing fine-grained fluvial and estuarine sediment, which form small plateaus about 1 meter high. Areas of high backscatter and megaripples are found between the erosional outliers. Location of image shown in figure 2.
