The image to the left shows the Gulf of Maine and its watershed with no vertical exaggeration.
 
The yellow box is at an elevation of approximately 1600 meters, the highest point in the watershed, Mount Washington.
 
The dark blue box is at an elevation of approximately minus 4800 meters, the depth of the base of the continental slope.
 
The light blue line (barely visible in this view) is at 0 meters elevation (sea-level).
