NOAA Photo Library Image - ship3157

Three-dimensional image of Monterey Canyon, termed a "gully" in this image. This image is the first attempt to depict a 3-dimensional view of a submarine canyon and incorporated soundings from the Coast and Geodetic Survey and the Fish Commission. This highly simplistic view was constructed from relatively sparse soundings and does not capture the complexity of the canyon system.
