    underwater....deep

    The search area is about 100 yards by 300 yards of mud, underwater a few inches to a few feet deep.

    Is it the mud or the water, that is a few inches to a few feet deep?

    Re: underwater....deep

    But there is not explicit mention of water. "underwater" is a single word.

    Re: underwater....deep

    And "underwater" means "under water." I probably would have written it as two words. The water is a few inches to a few feet deep. If they meant to say how deep the mud was, they would have written it differently.

    Something like: "The search area is completely underwater, about 100 yards by 300 yards of mud a few inches to a few feet deep."
