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. www.cofc.edu.
