Abstract : The steepest part of the banks of the Tongue of the Ocean (TOTO) extends from a depth of about 40 - 60m to a depth of 150 - 300m. From there the slope decreases, blending into the relatively flat bottom of the main part of the Tongue. To study these phenomena in more detail, a series of bottom photographs were made of an area off Golding Cay. An overlapping set of photographs was taken at depths ranging from 390 meters to a little over 1000 meters.
