THE GREAT ISLANDS UNDER THE SEA                                                                      continued

Coral, hauled up by cable in small steel baskets from depths of over
3000 feet near the Great Meteor Seamount and other mid-Atlantic
locations, indicates either a drop of thousands of feet, from close to
sea level, where coral grows, or a great rise in the level of the sea, or
perhaps both, since the time the coral was formed in shallow areas
around former islands.

As a result of a Swedish deep-sea mid-Atlantic expedition in 1947-1948,
Dr. R. Malaise announced in 1957 ( an exemplary ten-year interval for
checking!) that Dr. R. Kolbe had found numerous freshwater diatoms
(microscopic plankton) and remains of land-grown plants in cores taken
from two miles down on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge; in other words, remains
of animal and plant life that grew around ancient lakes when a great part
of the ridge was dry land.

Dr. Malaise further stated that analysis of the find indicated that the last
above-water period of the area was ten to twelve thousand years ago.

This is a further corroboration of the dating of the most recent thick ash
layers, which may have been produced by the volcanic eruption that
occurred during the days of Atlantis.

The Swedish research ship ALBATROSS, taking cores from a depth of two
miles in the Romanche fracture zone in the vicinity of the St. Peter and
St. Paul Rocks, brought up shallow-water microorganisms, preserved in
bottom mud, along with twigs, plants and tree bark, all of which had evi-
dently descended rapidly into the depths at the same time.
