No, mid-ocean ridges are not located mostly along coastlines. Mid-ocean ridges are underwater mountain ranges that form where tectonic plates are pulling apart. They are located in the middle of the ocean and can extend for thousands of kilometers.
Knowing the length of a coastline is important because it helps in understanding the geographical features and complexities of a region. It also aids in measuring the accessibility and connectivity of coastal areas, which is crucial for maritime transportation and trade. Additionally, accurately measuring the coastline length allows for better planning and management of coastal resources and environmental conservation efforts.
