Figure 1. A traditional black and white velocity vector plot that provides a qualitative picture of the entire system, but not specific causal relationships between flows and bathymetry

Figure 4. A false-color bathymetry filled contour plot with velocity vector overlay plot (units in ft) that illustrates causal relationships between velocity and bathymetry

Figure 5. An isovel-filled contour plot with velocity vector overlay (units in ft/s) that provides quantitative nformation over the entire area of interest (Velocity is in feet per second. To convert to meters per second, multiply by 0.3048)
