THE GREAT ISLANDS UNDER THE SEA                                                                  continued

The late Dr. Maurice Ewing, one of America's most prominent marine geolo-
gists and, incidentally, an outstanding critic of the concept of Atlantis,
nevertheless arrived at the conclusion that lava had spread over parts of
the Mid-Atlantic Ridge only recently, in geological terms: "Either the land
must have sunk two or three miles, or the sea must have been two to three
miles  lower than now.  Either conclusion is startling."

Examples of the composition of the seafloor are constantly being collected
and assessed by coring accomplished by research ships.  Some of the mate-
rial found within these cores, which bring up a vertical sample of the ocean
bottom of from ten to a hundred feet straight down, has revealed new infor-
mation pertinent to sunken lands and their time - and speed - of sinking.

Considerable volcanic ash has appeared in cores and dredges taken from the
Mid-Atlantic Ridge by the United States Geological Survey and by the oceano-
graphic research institutions of the USA, England, the USSR, France, Germany,
Canada, Denmark and other nations. 

Under separate study many of these sediments and rocks have been dated
radioactively and zoologically (the latter meaning the examination of insects
and any molecules above and beneath the ash).  Results indicate that the
ash came from surface explosions of ten to fifty thousand years ago, well
within the age span attributed to Atlantis
