  • This image shows a view of the Northwest Atlantic using data from the ERS-1 and Geosat satellites, analyzed by NOAA's Laboratory for Satellite Altimetry. Many interesting features can be seen in this image, including the gentle slope of the Continental Shelf off of the East Coast U.S. leading to the drop-off into the abyssal plain; the island chains of Bermuda and the Caribbean; the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, the world's longest mountain range that splits East and West Atlantic; the Puerto Rico Trench, the deepest place in the Atlantic; and even the Cape Verde Islands on the far right near Africa
