The GeoTIFF image of shaded-relief bathymetry colored by backscatter intensity provides a visualization of both bathymetry and backscatter intensity. The shaded-relief image was created by vertically exaggerating the bathymetry 3 times and then artificially illuminating the relief from the northwest (315 degrees, approximately the down-slope direction) by a light source positioned 45 degrees above the horizon. The backscatter intensity is represented by a suite of eight colors ranging from blue (low intensity) to green to yellow to red (high intensity).
