Abstract:

Seafloor morphology of the southwestern Indian Ocean is dominated by the very slow-spreading Southwest Indian Ridge. Traversing diagonally the whole area, the ridge extends 7700 km from the Bouvet triple junction to the Rodrigues triple junction. Along the ridge the topographic expression varies in a series of seven or more 'provinces.'
