Deployment period storm analysis.

Deployment period storm analysis. (A) significant wave height (red line) and wind speed and direction (arrows). Shading represents storm type (blue = cold front, red = warm front, yellow = low-pressure). (B) Vertical profiles of suspended-sediment concentration. (C) Cumulative along-shore and cross-shore sediment flux. Net sediment flux for this study period was onshore

Example of a rip current experiment.

Example of a rip current experiment. Colors show bathymetry and arrows show velocity vectors after 1 h of model simulation. Similar to results in Kumar and others, 2012.

Worldwide distribution of observed and inferred gas hydrates

Worldwide distribution of observed and inferred gas hydrates in marine and permafrost-associated settings that have been the subject of drilling programs. The color coding refers to the primary sediment type in each location and therefore designates the likely type of gas hydrate reservoir at each site.

Acoustic backscatter and bathymetry maps

 

Maps showing (A) acoustic backscatter and (B) bathymetry collected with the inteferomentric sonar.  High backscatter is displayed by light tones and low backscatter is displayed as dark tones within the backscatter image.  Regional bathymetric contours are in meters.  West of Watch Hill, the modern sand deposit is organized into a series of shoreface-attached
