Multibeam swath bathymetry, gravity and magnetic investigations were conducted across the major deltafront canyon known as Swatch-of-No-Ground in the northern Bay of Bengal. The study reveals that the canyon is a 300 m deep and 18 km wide depression with step-like micro-terraces running in NNE–SSW direction. The depth to the seafloor topography varies from 900 to 1459 m with 100–150 m thick levee sediments deposited on both the edges of the canyon as seafloor swells spreading over a distance of… Expand
