It would be hard to understand the formation of the Reykjanes Ridge and Iceland without Charlie Gibbs Fracture Zone. The shift of location of the central axis of the Ridge along Charlie-Gibbs is in fact exactly half the width of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. Thereby we have a reason why the drift vectors appear to be along the eastern side of the Reykjanes Ridge, not away from it.
I have a BS degree in geology, BA in anthropology, graduated in Chinese language and as a certified tourist guide. I provide this website about my contribution to answer the greatest question remaining about our Earth. I have analyzed the convection rolls within the Earth's mantle and how they affect the surface. This makes it possible to provide many interesting examples about geology found on my blog.
