Note(s): A zone of topographic prominences along Florida's eastern continental shelf edge has been mapped, using side- scan sonar and fathometer tracings. This zone (27°49. 5N and 79 ͦ58. 5'W), designated "Sebastian Pinnacle System", is extremely complex and contains a concentration of major shelf edge features resulting from combined geophysical and biological forces. Substrate distribution patterns indicate strong depositional and erosional activity by the Florida Current.
