Indian Ocean Floor Map. National Geographic Maps Classic Collection. 1992. This attractive physical map of the Indian Ocean floor appeared in the June 1992 issue of National Geographic. It contains an article entitled "Changing the Face of Earth" and additional information on continental drift. The map showss detail of such submarine terrain as fracture zones, basins, and ridges is stunning. A wonderful companion to the ocean floor map of the Pacific Ocean which appeared in the same issue.

Map of the Indian Ocean. 1:20,000,000. CGMW, 2004. Two sheets - sbeet one shows the physiography of the Indian Ocean. Sheet two is a structural map of the region. Each sheet is 118 x 77 cm in size.
Sample of the physiography sheet Sample of the structure sheet Physiography map. This map with its computer-generated image of the emerged and submarine morphology includes isobaths at -200m, -1000m, and then every 1000m. The map also shows the approximately 300 active or Holocene volcanoes and approximately 40 impact craters.
Structural map. This map represents onshore simplified geologic featuers: basins, orogenies, major faults, etc. Offshore the accent is on the structuration of the oceanic crust: chronostratigraphic ages, spreading axes, transform faults, subduction zones, and anomalous reliefs such as aseismic ridges and oceanic plateaus. Earthquakes of 5.0 magnitude or greater are plotted both onshore and offshore.
