Figure 29. Distribution of sedimentary environments based on the digital terrain model from National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration survey H11922 and the sampling and photography data from U.S. Geological Survey cruises 2010-033-FA and 2010-005-FA that were used to verify the acoustic data. Areas characterized by processes associated with erosion or nondeposition, coarse bedload transport, and sorting and reworking are shown.
