The slides included as Appendix D at the end of this book show two kinds of artificial stereo views. (1)
Artificial views made by draping an individual satellite image onto a bathymetric grid: the bathymetric grid was derived from spectral information in the satellite data with calibration from points of known water depth taken from published bathymetric maps. (2) Artificial views made from regional topographic and bathymetric data: the elevation data are color coded by height and illuminated by an artificial sun.

Satellite Images of Carbonate Depositional Settings
The book (147 p., color throughout) was originally published by AAPG in 1994 as a series of satellite images of modern carbonate environments to depict modern analogs in real-world scale to use for comparison to subsurface examples. Bahamas, Abu Dhabi, Belize, Great Barrier Reef, Caicos Platform—all are classic modern carbonate areas.
