During the tenth and final dive of Voyage to the Ridge 2022, we explored along a triple junction, a place where three mid-ocean ridges intersect, separating the North American Plate, Eurasian Plate, and African Plate. Dives such as these provide insights into the processes that shape our planet and impact the lives of those living in geologically active places such as the Azores.
