Re: the atlantis project

For all we know, water is what they are going to build this new continent out of! Either through replication of rock out of H2O, or by pumping seawater underground to adjust mantle temperatures...

On the other hand, if the Federation has true climate control down pat, it probably makes heat transport by ocean currents rather redundant. Controlling heat flows at will on global scale would seem to be a necessary step in the climate control process.

In TAS "Ambergris Element", tectonic adjustment was experimented upon, and supposedly later practically applied on a Federation planet as well. We don't know if the results on that other planet were as dramatic as on planet Argo, but we did witness the emergence of a large landmass from under the ocean there...
