Galeru Seamount and Erathipa Fracture Zone This sonar image shows a 1000 m high seamount on the north flank of the Southeast Indian Ridge.
The sharp bends in the abyssal hills mark the fracture zone scar from the spreading center offset at the Erathipa Transform.
The seamount and the smaller vocanic cones surrounding it were recently formed near the spreading center where new seafloor is being created by the NE-SW divergence of the Australian and Antarctic tectonic plates.
