Figure F3. Topography of acoustic basement in the area covered by Leg 194 site survey. Topography is given in two-way traveltime and is not depth corrected. Basement cannot be mapped below the internal MP2 platform in the north or below the entire MP2/MP3 platform in the south, because scattering and attenuation on the platform top hinders penetration of the seismic signal. Fine lines are spaced every 20 ms, which equals ~20 m. MP = Marion Plateau.
