fig12thu.jpg (47595 bytes)Figure 13. Detailed view of a sand-dollar field. The sidescan-sonar imagery shows the sand dollars as a high-backscatter band which usually has an abrupt seaward edge and a more gradational shoreward edge. Bottom photographs show that the inner shelf is rippled and that in the sand-dollar field the sand dollars stand on edge. Surface sediment samples show virtually no difference in sediment texture within and outside the sand-dollar field. Click on the figure to view a larger image.  Figure location shown in Fig. 4.
