Figure 4.16b. Backscatter intensity from sidescan-sonar showing outcropping ledges east of the Brewster Islands (see fig. 4.2 for map location).  These ENE-WSW-trending features exhibit the largest topographic variability in the study area and are characterized by moderate backscatter intensity.   Red dots show location of bottom photographs (see Appendix 3 to view all photographs at these locations); yellow dot is location of bottom sediment sample (Appendix 2); number is station identifier. See Figure 4.16a for companion shaded-relief map.
