Los Angeles Margin Perspective View of colored shaded-relief bathymetry

Overall perspective view of the Los Angeles Margin and Basin looking northeast. The distance across the bottom of the image is about 100 km with a vertical exaggeration of 6x. The margin is bisected by a series of large underwater canyons, channels, and gullies. Underwater landslides occur along the steep slope off the Palos Verdes Peninsula depositing large blocks (Fig. 3) into the deeper basin. Download 300dpi TIFF image (10 MB)
