you know that the Earths longest
mountain range is underwater?
Mid-Ocean Ridge system, shown above snaking its way between
the continents, is more than 56,000 kilometers (35,000 mi)
long. This series of mountains and valleys marks where the
Earths crustal plates are moving apart. This is where
most hydrothermal vents are located. The Extreme
2004 dive site is in a vent field at 9°40' N latitude
and 104°16' W longitude.
