THE GREAT ISLANDS UNDER THE SEA                                                                  continued

The great submerged islands of the Atlantic have been recognized by sonar
soundings as consisting of a series of plateaus, often connected by under-
water isthmuses and marked by present-day islands still above the level of
the ocean.

The sonar picture of the submerged islands, as indicated on depth maps,
shows several great land masses and suggests the presence of large bays,
numerous lakes and river systems, indicated by underwater canyons.

In the Western Atlantic, the Bahama Island group, if the sea level were dropp-
ed even one hundred meters, would form a single land mass as big as Florida.

It would have a very large bay, the present one-mile-deep area between
Andros and the Exuma chain called the Tongue of the Ocean.

It is on the present Bahama seafloor that more than fifty archaeological sites
have been located as evidence of a stone-building culture far beyond the
capabilities of the cannibal Carib Indians found there by the early explorers.
