This 1-m backscatter mosaic was created from 100 kHz Edgetech sidescan sonar data. Backscatter mosaic images are useful geophysical datasets for geologic framework studies. These data can be used in conjunction with other geophysical and sample data to identify sea-floor morphology and sediment texture.
