KAKRA KAKA'S OCEAN-FLOOR TRIVIA

If you take an object just 1000 feet under the sea, water pressure will squeeze and compact it to about half its original size!





Mount Everest is not the highest mountain in the world by any means. There are many mountains on the ocean floor that are much higher! In fact, some trenches are deeper than the height of Mount Everest!


Volcanoes often erupt on the ocean floor and build mountains. When these mountains rise above the surface of the ocean, they become islands. The Hawaian chain is one such example of a chain of volcanic islands.
