The canyon begins less than 160 m from shore just south of the Redondo Beach Harbor and incises over 420 m into the shelf (A) or about the same height as the Paloes Verdes Peninsula (440 m at B). The canyon ranges in width from 660m at its head to 3.2 km were it ends in the Santa Monica Basin. Download 300dpi TIFF image (19 MB)
