We are now heading north to pick up our last station. But before, we decided to survey another fracture zone along the mid-Atlantic ridge, a region of high seismic activity. There have been hundreds of earthquakes last year including a major 7.1 magnitude earthquake on 29th August 2016. This survey should help us identify surface tectonic features. Some parts of the fracture zone are as deep as 7000 meters, flanked by mountains and ridges as high as 3000 – 4000. The strength and grandiosity of the crustal deformation in this fracture zone is unprecedented, as the African and South American plates are tearing apart and sliding past each other.
