Processed side-scan mosaic over one of the focused survey sites. Several prominent features are present in the mosaic that correspond with carbonate rocks and fish aggregations seen in the photographs taken by Sentry during the same survey. Light colors represent harder material, while darker colors represent soft materials (i.e., sediment).
