ur continuous photographic transects (45 to 90 km in extent) were made with deep-towed, wide-angle cameras over the manganese pavement region of the Blake Pla¬teau. The photos indicate that the pavement is covered by discontinuous, mobile sand patches and that zones of transition exist between the pavement and manganese-nodule areas.
