Sea-Floor Sunday #54: Bathymetry of the Adriatic Sea
This week’s Sea-Floor Sunday image is a perspective image of the Adriatic Sea. The warm colors are shallower waters and the cool colors are deeper; it’s also highly vertically exaggerated to emphasize the changes in water depth.
I found this image on this site from Dartmouth that summarizes physical oceanography research. They are looking at the dynamics of various currents in the sea — having a good map of the sea floor is key for understanding these currents.
