Depths are in uncorrected meters. (15OO m/s). Isobath spacing 20 m.
The 500 m isobath spacing should also be achieved over flanks of mid-ocean ridges and within submarine passages encountered along

Isobath spacing: 200 metres. Coastline and rivers from World Vector Shoreline, US National Image and. Mapping Agency.

The interpretation and processing of the data was done onshore and resulted in, amongst others, a set of maps at a scale of 1:10 000, with 2 m depth contour line interval, showing sediment thick­ness and structure, all pockmarks with a diameter larger than 10 m,wrecks, and the intensity of trawl scars (figure 8). - - page 14

Contour Lines:

Contour lines are used to show the depth of the water. These are lines which join points of equal depth. For example a line showing the figure 3 means that the depth all along the line is three feet. It should be noted that contour lines never cross each other. The contour interval on the map is merely the difference in depth between each contour line. A contour interval of 3 feet would mean there is a difference of 3 feet in depth between each successive line - - page 6 (right column)
