Figure showing seismic profile offshore of Murrels Inlet.

Figure 5. Chirp sub-bottom profile offshore of Murrells Inlet. The seismic profile clearly displays underlying Cretaceous/Tertiary strata (red), paleochannels (orange), and the regional unconformity (blue). Also displayed is a shoal complex associated with Murrells Inlet. Vertical scale is displayed as two-way travel time in milliseconds and approximate depth in meters (assuming 1500 m/s speed of sound). (Figure modified from Baldwin, 2002). PDF Version Figure 5
