This area was mapped in January 2008. Rough seas have contributed significant noise to the
image, but the general features of a broad, smooth body of sand (red)
that is cut by a 1 m channel is evident. This area exhibits approximately 9 m of relief (~27 ft.).




Profile a-a' depicts a channelized area, whereas
profile b-b' that cuts across the area shows a smooth ridge of sand
