The Atlantic Ocean Facts:



In 1969, by order of Duke University, an expedition to the Aves Ridge in the Caribbean
Sea found granite on fifty locations. Usually, granite is found only onshore or where
once had been solid ground.

In 1898, 750 km north of the Azores, the transatlantic cable broke. On this occasion,
rock samples were taken from a depth of 17 000 fathoms. A close examination came
to the result that the rock samples consisted of tachylyte, a lava-like substance.
Yet this mineral would not emerge unless above sea level and under atmospheric
pressure.

Moreover, it will decompose after 15 000 years.

This means that once there had been mainland.




In a depth of up to 1 000 metres, coastal sand was found on the reefs of the Azores.
However, it usually only appears on flat beaches.

In 1936, the Geological Society of America conducted a study of sunken river canyons
in the Atlantic Ocean. It says that rivers on the European, the North African and the
American side sank into the continental sockets for up to 300 km in length and 2 km in
depth. That means that in the Pleistocene Age, that is when mankind emerged, the sea
level underwent a change in depth up to 2 000 metres.
