NOAA Photo Library Image - map00134

Perhaps the first three-dimensional image of a portion of the deep ocean. This map was produced from soundings primarily obtained by the C&GS Steamer BLAKE. An early rendition of this model is found in the C&GS Annual Report for 1884. This image is found in Alexander Agassiz's "Three Cruises of the BLAKE" published in 1888.
