Description: The Mid-Atlantic Ridge is a mainly underwater mountain range in the Atlantic Ocean that runs from 87°N south of the North Pole- to sub Antarctic Bourvet island at 54°S.
The Mid-ocean ridge was discovered in the 1950s.
It led to the theory of seafloor spreading and acceptance of the continental drift theory.
The tectonic plates are still moving apart, at a rate of about 2.5 cm per year in a horizontal direction.
The mid-ocean ridge is between 300 and 600 miles wide.
The mid-ocean ridge is responsible for forming the islands; Azores, Ascension, St. Helena, and Tristan da Cunha, etc.
Saying: The mid-ocean ridge is looks like a broken water bridge
