A new topographic map of Earth's mysterious ocean floor reveals thousands of towering volcanoes, hidden gashes where supercontinents ripped apart and other never-before-seen features once veiled by miles of water and thick sediment.

Truly amazing! I always believed a majority of the ocean floor had been mapped out...I guess not.




The world's volcano count jumped tremendously thanks to the new map. The number of seamounts soared from around 5,000 to about 20,000, Sandwell said. Seamounts are small, conical volcanoes that are usually inactive or extinct. In the deep ocean, tall seamounts attract a riot of marine life. The map captures all seamounts more than 0.9 miles (1.5 kilometers) tall.

Facinating..

Would be very interesting to get a high res version of that map 9000*9000 somehing..
And then look around for atlantis, alien bases, crashed ufos and so.

As above; so below.

Many believe that the land down under, not Australia, once was above.

And will be again.

Many people think Earth has been observed and mapped down to the smallest detail. That's why they found it so hard to believe that MH370 could not be found. This mapping of the Indian Ocean floor southwest of Australia is one of the results of the search for that aircraft.

When people live surrounded by technology, they can come to overestimate its capabilities. Those who know how these things work never make that error. Talk to a mariner, a pilot or a geographer and you'll hear a very different story.
