Bathymetry of the southern Mariana region. Colors show water depths: dark blue is deepest, reds are shallowest, black is land, and white shows areas that have not been mapped yet. This map required data from many cruises to compile (compilation thanks to Susan Merle, NOAA Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory, Newport, Oregon). Box shows area of detail shown in Fig. 2.
