Summary: Summarized geological and geomorphological data obtained by the R/V Dmitry Mendeleev (25th cruise, 1980) in the eastern part of the Indian Ocean are presented. Materials from stations, dredging and deep-sea drilling were examined in great detail to determine the morphostructure of the Broken Ridge and the volcanic Bezrukov seamount resting on its crest. Tectonic transformations and stages of the geological history of the Broken Ridge and the Kerguelen Plateau were studied in connection with the spreading of southeastern Indian Ridge, which has undergone a series of evolutionary cycles when the Indo-Australian lithospheric plate was shifting to the north.
