Multibeam Mapping and Exploration of the Continental Shelf Edge.
The continental shelf edge off South Carolina collected by the NOAA Ship Nancy Foster in March 2006. The data are being contextualized with previously quantified shelf-edge sidescan sonar and sub-bottom profiler data from the region. The most prominent feature discovered is an outcropping hard-ground structure approximately 650 by 150 m, with 10m vertical relief. It is oriented parallel to shore along the shelf edge in water depths of 60 m.
