Caption: Bathymetric model of the North Atlantic. 3-D satellite and bathymetry model showing the topography of the Earth's crust over the North Atlantic. Iceland (centre) sits on a central-oceanic ridge that is extremely volcanically active. Lava pushing up beneath this ridge forces the North American plate (left) and the Eurasian plate (lower right) apart. This process is known as plate tectonics. This image was created by the German Aerospace Center (DLR) using measurments from the ERS-1 satellite.
