Figure 21. Side-scan sonar image and seismic reflection profile from Muscongus Bay (modified from Barnhardt and others, 1996 a-g). The data were gathered simultaneously, and "x" and "y" refer to the same places. Simultaneous collection of side-scan and seismic data allow a more complete understanding of the seafloor than images by only one system.
