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.
