Long Beach Perspective View

Figure 5b. Same perspective view of continental shelf as in Figure 5a but in this view the seafloor image is backscatter draped over bathymetry; reds and oranges are high backscatter, blues and greens are low backscatter. High-backscatter outcrops occur on the seafloor southeast of Palos Verdes Peninsula; linear depressions (see Figure 3) occur on the lower right of image.
