Illuminated horizon with time structure overlain (warm colors indicate bathymetric highs and cool colors indicate bathymetric lows), with associated transverse seismic amplitude section, illustrating deep erosional scour at the base of a mass-transport deposit. Not the same location as the regional project. Seismic data courtesy of Western Geophysical.
