NOAA Photo Library Image - map00077

This 3-dimensional view of the equatorial Atlantic seafloor was produced following the German METEOR Expedition of 1925-1927. Unfortunately it was destroyed during the Second World War but the image survives. The Mid-Atlantic Ridge snakes down the middle of the Atlantic Ocean between Brazil on the left and Africa on the right.
