One of the most intriguing pieces of evidence was published by R.W. Kolbe,
a Swedish geologist, in 1957.  Kolbe studied cores drilled at a depth of about
two miles in the mid-Atlantic ridge between the Caribbean and North Africa,
in what might have been the southern portion of Atlantis.

He reported in SCIENCE finds of exclusively freshwater plants (diatoms) in
portions of the cores.  He concluded, in part, that this portion of the mid-
Atlantic ridge was once above sea level and that the diatoms had originated
in a fresh water lake.

Kolbe discusses Atlantis as a serious proposition.  He cites another geologist,
Rene Malaise, who felt that parts of the mid-Atlantic ridge must have existed
as large islands up to the end of the last ice age or later and were submerged
in early historical times.
