Figure 26, weighted mobility for all scenarios.
Figure 26. Weighted mobility probability (table 2, metric 7) from April 2010 to August 2012 along the Gulf Islands National Seashore (east of Pensacola Pass, Fla.) for 2.5-centimeter surface residual balls (SRBs). Shown is an estimate using A, the highest estimate of critical stress, appropriate for SRBs flush with the seabed, and B, the lowest estimate of critical stress, appropriate for SRBs sitting atop the seabed.
