Lake Michigan

Little Traverse Bay Perspective View

Return to the Little Traverse Bay Perspective Views

Perspective view of colored shaded-relief multibeam bathymetry of Lake Michigan; see caption below.

Oblique view looking toward the east over Nine Mile Point. This view illustrates the onshore (G) and offshore expression of a glacially created drumlin trending northwest-southeast. The view also shows the sharp trough-like boundary (B) between the offshore sediment covered region and the nearshore, irregular relief of coarser material and outcrop. The vertical exaggeration is 4x and the distance across the bottom of the image is about 1.0 km.
