San Diego Margin Perspective View

Back to San Diego Margin Perspective Views

Perspective view of San Diego multibeam bathymetry; see caption below.

Perspective view of the San Diego multibeam bathymetry looking east. A series of gullies along the inner shelf break merge into one larger channel, which merges with the Loma Sea Valley in the foreground of this image. Water depths range from about 100 m at the shelf break to about 600 m in the bottom left of this image. The land imagery in the background is a combination of Landsat-7 imagery and USGS DEMs. The distance across the bottom of the image is about 6 km. The vertical exaggeration is 2X.
