Seamounts represent volcanic mountains which are under water, with their height of 1,000 meters or more. When they have their parts above the sea level, they form oceanic islands. Those oceanic islands might start sinking if seamounts are carried along the spreading oceanic crust under the influence of the process of tectonic plate movements. When erosion by ocean waves starts, their tops will become flattened and they will transform into guyots.
