Nautical Charts

The bathymetry of the North Pacific Ocean as shown on some very interesting nautical charts, features deep sea basins and trenches such as the Northwest Pacific Basin (with depths over -10,500 m) to the south of the Kamchatka Peninsula, and the Aleutian Trench (with depths over -8,000 m) just south of the Aleutian Islands. Shallower regions are found along the continental shelves and the marginal seas. Nautical charts are produced for marine navigation. They contain information on all navigational aids, such as buoys and beacons, lighthouses, radio and radar stations, shipping channels, restricted areas. Some charts are issued with Loran-C plotting grid s or great circle sailing tracks. Water depths are recorded as soundings, in meters, feet or fathoms.
