Cross-Section of the Atlantic Basin at Latitude 12 N extending from Sierra Leone to Barbados. This profile was made as a result of sounding taken on the School-Ship MERCURY, a vessel for training orphan boys and delinquent boys in nautical and oceanographic science. The sounding at 45 W indicated the southern extension of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge from the Azores.

The "Mickey Mouse Salt Domes" as they were called by Paul Grim of NOAA's EEZ mapping program in 1989. These domes were first surveyed by the NOAA Ship MT. MITCHELL, the largest dome being named Mitchell Dome for the ship. Whiting Dome, named for the NOAA Ship WHITING is the large dome to the NW. These are among the largest salt domes in the Gulf of Mexico.
