Survey of Atlantis 2: the Complete Gente and Dyment Article

Atlantis As A Geological Reality In The 21st Century

I mentioned this before and I had only posted excerpts before, but this is a most important article for establishing the geological reality of a former large island in the North Atlantic attached to the Azores and breaking up at the end of the Pleistocene Ice Ages. All credit goes to the authors of this article, Pascal Gente, Jerome Dyment, Marcia Maia and Jean Goslin. This information should be installed in all of our geology textbooks. I endorse this work without hesitation and I find it to be basically in line with the earlier work of the German author Otto Muck. Click on the individual pages for a larger view.

The original path to the download link is on the "Survey of Atlantis" page of the Golden Age Project. I do not endorse the Golden Age Project and they do not endorse me, but the download link is all of the way down at the bottom of this page:

  1. Uh why can't I just download a pdf?

  2. And the answer is: You CAN

    The original part of this string was posted back in February when this group was new. This posting is plainly listed as part 2.

    But since you mentioned it, nothing prevents me from re-posting the link. I simply have not checked the link since February when I downloaded my own copy, so I don't know right off if it still works or not. But I'll add the download link into the part 2 as well, just to keep things tidy.

  3. I reposted the link and it appears to be out of date. I shall try the originating site once again to provide a better path to the pdf download.

    Best Wishes, Dale D.

  4. Incidentally, not emphasized enough in the Gente article is the fact that the Azores platform Island would ride much higer in earlier ages when there was a full tank of magma to float it up. The current depressed condition of the MAR has to do with the fact that the magma chamber below it has been emptied out and the whole area is depressed to a lower depth because of this. The East Pacific and Indian Ocean ridges ride higher with a different underwater profile because they currently have active magma chambers beneath them. Conservative estimates make out the difference with the removal of the magma chambers as two or three kilometers and perhaps more: it makes for a major subsidence. Scientific estimates of the subsidence at the Azores can quote a figure of 9000-10000 feet in the regular Oceanography sourcebooks. I believe that figure comes from the Scientific American.

    6000 feet in depression is certainly quoted several times in connection to this feature, and it is cited as a recent development in mountain (volcano) building in the Azores.
