Note(s): Three areas of the Southeastern Florida continental shelf were systematically mapped using side--scan sonar and fathometer tracings during 1977-78. Two of these sites were shelf-edge features and the third was a section of the limestone outcrop which divides the inner and outer shelf zones along this coast. These efforts represent the first attempt to generate precise topographic contour maps of outer shelf and shelf-edge prominences in this area.
