What is a guyot? A guyot is flat top seamount thought to originally be an extinct volcano that was once above the ocean surface and has been eroded down flat over time. A good example of a guyot close to Australia is the Cascade Guyot about 200km off the coast of Tasmania. You can clearly see in the 20km terrain profile how the guyot is flat on top.
Make sure you check out the terrain profile for the Gifford Guyot.
