Image of chirp seismic-reflection profile collected offshore of Fire Island, New York.

Figure 3.
High-resolution chirp seismic-reflection profile illustrating the stratigraphic features and geometries discussed in this report. Location of the profile is shown in figure 2C. Approximate water depth in meters was converted from two-way travel time assuming a seismic velocity of 1,500 meters per second.
