3. Lesser AntilIes Ridge The Lesser Antilles Ridge east of Tobago Trough is about 750 km long and about 25-40 km wide at its southern end. North of 16° N the ridge separates into two ridges with a total width of more than 100 km. Atop the outer ridge are the Limestone Caribs, and atop the inner ridge the Volcanic Caribs. The Limestone Caribs are limited to the northern half of the ridge, whereas the volcanic islands extend to within 150 km of Venezuela. The limestone islands consist of middle and late Eocene tilted andesitic tuffs and tuff-breccias intruded by hypabyssal basalt, andesite, and quartz diorite and capped by OligoceneMiocene limestones (Christman, 1953).

(1971), but is of the same composition as the oceanic crust. Data on the sedimentary blanket atop the swell has come from boreholes, cores, dredge sampies, and seismic profiling.
