Figure F6. Detailed bathymetry of most of area drilled during Expedition 318. The irregular morphology of the continental shelf is characterized by several >1000 m deep inner-shelf basins (Site U1357), erosional troughs extending from these basins to the shelf edge (Site U1358), and shallow banks adjacent to the troughs (Site U1360). The slope is incised by numerous canyons that in the continental rise evolve to channel-levee complexes (Sites U1356, U1359, and U1361).
