Part I. Northern Straits of Florida
Abstract:A new chart showing the results of recent surveys of bottom topography of the northern portion of the Straits of Florida from 27° 30′ N to 24° 30′ N is presented. A smoothly graded axial valley which deepens towards the south and west has its head near the northern end of the Straits. The slope of the valley is interrupted by a 60 mile long plain at 462 fathoms. The Florida or western margin is more gently sloping, has a prominent ridge at 200 fathoms and terraces not found on the Bahama side which is everywhere steep and concave.
