The continental shelf is the natural extension of the continent as it descends to the deep oceanic floor (see diagram).

Marine geology, a relatively new and interesting study field in marine science!

Imagine that you could take away the oceans and be able to explore the ocean floor and the continental shelf just like we investigate the land area on Earth. That is a part of what marine geologists do but the investigation has to be done with the water still there! It is a beautiful and hidden historic archive.....
