The Mariana Trench includes the deepest place in the world's oceans, with its maximum depth of approximately 11 kilometers. This animation strongly exaggerates the vertical dimension (the trench is almost five times wider than it is deep) to further enhance the visual effect. Colors used to depict the sea floor were chosen arbitrarily.

NOAA/NGDC compiles, archives, and distributes data and derived science products describing the seafloor and sub-surface. Models of the sea floor serve as the basis for the animation like this one. These animations were produced from models developed with digital bathymetric data. More: http://ngdc.noaa.gov/mgg/bathymetry/r....
