Mountain ranges in the ocean are called mid-ocean?
uuuhhh sure i think so broham
Midocean Ridge - Underwater Mountains! A mountain chain on the ocean floor that forms where tectonic plates pull apart.
they r called mountain ranges
The continuous mountain ranges in the earth's ocean basins are called mid-ocean ridges. These ridges were discovered with sonar, which was used to map the ocean floor.
well there is mountain ridges on land and it is a little bit the same in the ocean they r called mid ocean ridges which are mouton ranges undrwater
Mid ocean ranges
Yes there are
mid ocean ridges are underwater mountain ranges.
a series of mountain ranges on the ocean floor.
mountain ranges in the ocean are not effected by erosion, freeze and thaw cycles, or the root of trees and plants prying the rocks apart.
Plate tectonics tell us that mountain ranges form where two plates are colliding. Be it a ocean ocean, ocean continental, or continental continental boundary.
It is true that mid-ocean ridges are underwater mountain ranges. These ridges are where the lithosphere is moving apart and new oceanic crust is being formed.
Because of weather patterns in the ocean and mountain ranges.
mountain ranges,the ocean,and deserts
It is true that mid-ocean ridges are underwater mountain ranges. These ridges are long, seismically active submarine ridges associated with seafloor spreading.
Submarine Mountain Ranges/Ridges are terms applied to Mid-Ocean Ridges.
What is the difference between a rift valley and a mid ocean ridge and what kinds of boundaries do they form at?
a rift valleyis a dip in the ocean floor a mid ocean ridge is a mountain chain formed on the ocean floor . Rift valley - divergent boundary MidOcean Ridge Convergent Boundary
The Ural Mountain from kazakhstan all the way to the artic ocean
the mid-ocean ridges
Deep ocean ridges, ocean trenches, mountain ranges, volcanoes, faultlines
Yes, there are mountain ranges under the sea. Mid-ocean ridge is a term for underwater mountains. The East Pacific Rise is an example of underwater mountains.
Of course! Mountain ranges can be underwater! Right?...
the most famous of them is the mid-ocean ridge. it is the longest mountain range in the world.
The highest mountain range is the Himalayas, The longest mountain range is the Andes(7000km, or 4300 miles long), If you are including underwater mountain ranges the longest mountain range is called the Ocean ridges, it is a chain of mountains that runs on the sea floor of five ocean across the world, the total length of the system is 80000km or 49700 miles.
Mountain ranges. Ocean trenches. Island arcs. Volcanoes.
At the highest parts of the midocean ridge.
There a dozens of mountain ranges on both land and on the oceans' floor. Some include the following longest mountain ranges: 1. Ocean Ridge (also known as Mid-ocean ridge) 2. Andes 3 .Rocky Mountains 3. Great Dividing Range 4. Transantarctic Mountains 5. Himalayas See Sources and related links for a list.
The chain of mountains that form the mid-ocean-ridges are the longest mountain chains in the world.
At the mid-ocean ridges, large underwater mountain ranges formed along diverging oceanic plates.
Rising molten basaltic rock from the top of the mantle fills the crack at the midocean ridge and solidifies, preventing it from closing again.
The mountain ranges west of death valley (4 of them) prevent the moisture from the pacific ocean to arrive which is called rain shadow.
because it is the picicock rode to the ocean
Landforms such as ocean trenches and mountain ranges are created.
Mountain ranges are created at convergent plate boundaries. That is where two plates, either ocean and continental or continental and continental come together.
a mid ocean ringe
The Mid-Atlantic Ridge (MAR) is a mid-ocean ridge, a divergent tectonic plate boundary located along the floor of the Atlantic Ocean, and part of the longest mountain range in the world.. Copy and Pasted, but hope this is what you were looking for. :)
The mid ocean ridge is the under water moutain chain that runs in 3 of the main oceans
What do earthquakes volcanoes mineral deposits ocean trenches and mountain ranges all have in common?
they all occur along plate boundaries
they both are form from convergent plate boundries
Older, as it moves away from the mid-ocean ridge the sediment gets thicker and older
midocean ridges alternating bands of different magnetic fields appearing nearly symmetrically on opposite sides of midocean ridges deep sea trenches etc.
Russia's big mountain ranges are in the south. Those ranges do have rivers flowing south - but they flow into other countries. So the North sides of these ranges flow north 'DOWN' to the Artic.
the coastal mountain ranges stand between it and the Pacific Ocean
The tropic of Capricorn circles the entire Earth, and crosses points at every elevation from ocean level to mountain ranges.
The physical features of Monaco are mainly characterized by the fauna and flora. There are high mountain ranges and an ocean that forms a coastline.
