Figure 14. Detailed multibeam-bathymetric image of boulders and scour depressions along the northern edge of the study area. Boulders are often found in hummocky areas. Scour depressions near the coast tend to have northward reaching fingers; however, the main bodies of the depressions widen offshore, opening into large scoured areas that parallel the coast. Location shown in figure 12.
