3-D maps of Heceta Bank made from multi-beam data. Top image is about 30 miles north to south and 10 miles east-west. The southern part of the bank has a clearly defined western edge marking an ancient shoreline. The bottom image is northern shoal portion of bank. The fracture patterns are "megajoints" caused by stresses in the earth. The curved troughs are caused by variable erosion.

Track of the Surveying Brig DOLPHIN from September 1851 to July 1852. This track chart contains depth information, currents, winds, and other observations. It could be fair to say that U.S. Navy deep sea oceanography began with this cruise ordered by Matthew Fontaine Maury with the DOLPHIN under the command of Lieutenant Samuel Phillips Lee, USN.
