Caption: Oceanic depth chart. This chart shows the depths recorded in June and July 1873 in the Atlantic between Bermuda (left) and the Azores (right) and Madeira (far right). These soundings and temperature readings (isothermal lines) were taken during the voyage of HMS Challenger (1872-1876). This scientific expedition, organised by the Royal Society, spent four years surveying the world's oceans. It effectively founded the science of oceanography, with these initial results being followed later by more detailed studies.
