Figure 12. A ternary diagram that graphs the two coarsest sediment samples from the 2012 Maine Seafloor Mapping Survey area. The sample with the most sand and gravel (black circle) was from station MSMS_0135 and was classified as a gravelly muddy sand (Table 2). This grab was from the shallowest depth 390 feet (118 m) and also contained a sea mouse. Another sample with gravel (open circle) was MSMS_0192 from 440 feet (134 m) depth. Graph by K. Jacobacci, University of Maine.
