The Earth’s mid-ocean ridges form a single, connected, topological feature which, as Roger Searle points out, is the longest mountain range in the world. They have developed as a result of the sea floor spreading associated with tectonic movements. Although this idea is now very soundly based and almost universally accepted, it is actually of surprisingly recent origin.
