Caption

GeoSphere mosaic satellite image of the whole Earth showing bathymetry of the Atlantic Ocean. Land cover information from satellite images is merged with an ocean topography model. The obvious ocean-floor feature is the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, a tectonic spreading fault that appears like a scar along the length of the ocean. Also clear are the continental shelves of Europe (top right), North America (top left) and South America's east coast (bottom left). On the west coast of the Americas is a destructive plate margin, responsible for the Andes and Rocky mountain ranges.
