Bank of Soundings, or briefly " Soundings,"
stretching from France in lat. 48 N. to Ireland in
long. 11 W. across the mouth of the Channel,
is a tract where soundings, in 70 to 100 fath., are
had coming from the Atlantic. It is steep at the
edge which is known, in fine weather by the
ripplings, in rough weather by the discolouration,
of the water. The bottom is sandy and coarse,
without mud, except about 49 20', the parallel
for entering the Channel, where it is muddy. A
few smaller banks, as the Nymph, and others are
marked in the charts, but they scarcely alter the
character of the bottom, which rises from the
edge evenly up the British chan. and also up the
Bristol chan., but deepens a little towards the
Welsh side of St. George's chan. Rennell's cur-
rent setting NW. out of the Bay of Biscay, is
at times sensibly felt hereabouts.
