Sand waves 1
The U.S. Geological Survey and California State University, Monterey Bay, jointly conducted research on the area and have made public a set of striking images that bring the seafloor to life in never-before-seen detail.
The maps, which are based on data collected in 2004 and 2005, show a field of 40 individual sand waves that cover an area of roughly two square miles and sits just west of the Golden Gate Bridge.
