A ridge is a geological feature of a continuous elevational crest for some distance. They are usually termed hills or mountains as well, depending on size. Normally these were formed when magma wells erupted at places where the ocean floor was pulled apart. There are two ways in which these are formed; namely slab-push and ridge-push. The process starts when two separate currents of mantle under the crust collide and move upwards.
