Puerto Rico Trench | National Geographic Society

Map. The Puerto Rico Trench is the deepest part of the Atlantic Ocean.

Grades

6 — 12

Subjects

Earth Science, Geography, Geology, Oceanography, Physical Geography

In 2002 and 2003, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) conducted a major research study of the Puerto Rico Trench. Situated just north of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the Puerto Rico Trench separates the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea.

The ocean trench is a geologically complex site. The Caribbean and North American tectonic plates are scraping by each other, making a huge transform fault that extends from the Puerto Rico Trench to the coast of Central America. The Caribbean plate is shifting east, while the North American plate is shifting west.

In addition to the transform fault, the Puerto Rico Trench is also associated with a subduction zone. To the trench’s east, the heavy North American plate, which carries the northern Atlantic Ocean as well as the continent of North America, is being subducted beneath the smaller Caribbean plate.

Fast Fact

According to NOAA:

  • The deepest part of the Puerto Rico Trench is just over 8,600 meters (5.3 miles).

Fast Fact

  • The Puerto Rico Trench is a very flat depression, 280 kilometers (175 miles) long.

Fast Fact

  • The southern side of the trench, north of Puerto Rico, is covered with a smooth layer of limestone.

Fast Fact

  • A large fault system, the Bunce Fault, was discovered in very deep water near the trench. The Bunce Fault is similar to the San Andreas Fault in California. The Bunce Fault was named after Dr. Elizabeth (Betty) Bunce, a marine geophysicist who investigated the Puerto Rico Trench in the 1950s.

Fast Fact

  • A mud volcano was discovered at a depth of 7,900 meters (25,919 feet). The volcano spewed mud as far as 10 kilometers (6.2 miles).

Every year more and more tourists from all over the world come here. A measured lifestyle against the backdrop of heavenly landscapes in the best traditions of Caribbean hospitality offers the traveler this amazing island of eternal summer.

Puerto Rico on the world atlas

Thanks to the development of the tourism industry, every year millions of vacationers from different parts of the world come to the island.

This island is valued for the friendliness, warmth and sincerity of the hospitable locals.

Where is it and what country is it?

Puerto Rico is one of the states of Central America , consisting of several islands: a large island of the same name and a group of small ones: Mona, Deseceo and others. They belong to the Greater Antilles group.

From the east, the borders of the islands are adjacent to the British Virgin Islands, in the west — to the Dominican Republic. The total area of ​​ states is 9104 km². One of the main problems of the country is significant overpopulation.

The goal of most tourists to Puerto Rico is a beach holiday. Read here at what water temperature you can swim without harm to health.

The political structure of this country is quite unusual : the fact is that Puerto Ricans have self-government and their own Constitution, but are subject to the United States Congress. Such a device is characteristic of the territories that were preparing to become one of the states of the American power.

Chief Executive Officer — Governor elected by local residents. Despite the fact that every inhabitant of the island has American citizenship, they cannot participate in the election of the owner of the White House.

Brief historical background

The island, whose name literally translates as «Rich Port» , was personally discovered by Christopher Columbus during his second trip to Novaya Zemlya. The first name, San Juan de Bautista, was given to the island by the great navigator himself, and today the abbreviated form of this name is the capital.

The indigenous people here were the Taino Indians, who were soon destroyed everywhere by the conquistadors.

Gradually, Puerto Rico became a Spanish colony and went through all stages of development: from the largest commercial port to an abandoned island without serious development prospects. At the end of the 19th century, Puerto Rico came under the control of the United States of America, but this did not bring big changes in the life of the population.

The 20th century for local residents was marked by a protracted struggle for independence, gradually fading away as the new millennium approached. At the moment, a growing number of islanders are in favor of joining the United States as a 52nd State .

Pregnant women, like no one else, should purchase travel health insurance. Read about the nuances of obtaining this type of insurance in our article.

State structure

The island’s heavenly magnificence does not affect the rather deplorable demographic situation in the country. The period of active development of Puerto Rico stopped at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, and after the Second World War, the outflow of the local population to continental America only intensified.

Also, the deteriorating economic situation, and as a result, the low birth rate, also affects the decline in the population.

The religious situation in Puerto Rico is quite typical of all Caribbean countries. The Catholic Church has significant parity, since the time of Spanish rule, Protestant denominations have recently begun to gain influence, but their percentage is still not high.

A small Orthodox community of Puerto Ricans, mostly Russian speakers, is cared for by a small metropolitan parish of the Greek Church in honor of St. Spyridon, who does not give up hope of passing into the jurisdiction of the Russian Church. There are also eight mosques in Puerto Rico and one Jewish community in the capital.

The languages ​​spoken by the vast majority of citizens are Spanish and English , and they speak both of them quite confidently, especially urban residents. For a long time, the recognition of English as a second state language or the abolition of this status by various Puerto Rican governors was an indicator of the level of political proximity of the local authorities with the United States.

Transport

1311 high level : due to the lack of a railway here, the most remote parts of the island are connected by developed roads and highways. True, it is worth noting that the bus service on the island is not popular: it is easier to rent a car.

Guests from the mainland are received by the capital’s Carolina Airport , bearing the name of Luis Munoz Marin, a well-known political figure in the country and the first governor elected by popular vote. The airport also carries out large-scale cargo transportation between all countries of Central and Latin America.

When flying somewhere, certain baggage rules apply. Read about it here.

The port of San Juan provides maritime traffic, and in the center of the capital there is a single-line subway, inaugurated in 2004.

Flora and fauna

The flora and fauna of Puerto Rico is very rich and represents the best example of the Caribbean fauna. The most complete with the diversity of the natural wealth of the island can be found by visiting the local reserve «Caribbean National Forest» or «El Yunque», the area of ​​​​which is more than 11 thousand hectares. Beautiful waterfalls, mangrove forests and unusual animals: all this will leave a lasting impression on the most demanding traveler.

Puerto Rico is also surrounded by coral reefs, of which there are a huge number. The real symbol and talisman of the islanders has become a small coca frog , famous for its deafening, in the truest sense of the word, cry.

Unfortunately, the aggressive colonial activity of the Spanish invaders led to the global extinction of many species of flora and fauna of Puerto Rico.

Despite this, today the island boasts:

  • 13 species of unique terrestrial mammals;
  • 18 species of unique marine mammals ;
  • 5 families and 13 species bats ;
  • 349 bird species ;
  • 25 types amphibians ;
  • 61 reptiles ;
  • 677 species fish .

Plant world of the Caribbean island is represented by:

  1. 750 plant species ;
  2. 225 species trees ;
  3. More than 100 species mosses and ferns .

Climate

1312 . The climate here is quite mild and humid. The temperature is always moderately high, averaging +27-29 degrees above zero throughout the year. The south is warmest, and the coolest weather is in the center of the island, where the mountain ranges lie. In summer and autumn, strong hurricane-force winds blow from the Atlantic.

Puerto Rico has a US entry regime, so the visa must be appropriate. Read this article on how to apply for an American visa document.

Urban infrastructure

The dense population of the islands of Puerto Rico leads to the fact that local settlements acquire the size of enough large cities . It is on the territory of the urban area that the developed infrastructure is located, which forms such an attractive resort image of the country.

Administrative division

The relatively small island of Puerto Rico and its related islands are divided into 78 municipalities, each headed by a democratically elected mayor. Their term of office is 4 years. Each municipality is divided into districts, and those into sectors.

At the moment, the number of municipalities is finally formed, the last of them was formed in 1971 years.

Large resort towns

The most significant cities in Puerto Rico in terms of recreation and resort infrastructure development are:

  1. San Juan . The capital of the state is not only the administrative, but also the tourist center of the country. The oldest city, which was founded by Columbus, reached its peak after the Second World War, when it became a real tourist «calling card» of the island. San Juan attracts tourists not only with its incredible beaches, but also with architectural buildings, many of which were built back in the 17th century;
  2. Aguadilla . The industrial capital of Puerto Rico, located in the northwest of the main island. Despite the large number of banks and business centers, Aguadilla is also rich in excellent beaches that will appeal to everyone;
  3. Mayagüez . The picturesque port city in the west of Puerto Rico is located in the gorge of two enchanting rivers: the Rio Yaguez and the Rio Guanajibo. For Eugenio Maria de Hostos, this city was not only a homeland, but also a muse, as the famous Puerto Rican educator and writer repeatedly admitted.

Each coastal city of the island boasts incredible richness of its underwater world, so this type of recreation, like diving, is in no way inferior to the beach.

Puerto Rican Trench on the map of the Atlantic Ocean

On the border of the Atlantic and the Caribbean, the infamous subsurface plate shift , the Puerto Rico Trench, exacerbates the seismological situation in the region. A number of large-scale natural disasters, the last of which occurred in 2010, according to research, occurred from here.

The Puerto Rico trench is located 120 km north of the Caribbean coast of the islands of the same name.
