A guyot is a geological term describing a particular type of underwater volcano. To be classified as a guyot, the volcano must be at least 3,000 feet high and have a flat summit located at least 660 feet below the surface. Guyots are named after Swiss-American geologist Arnold Henry Guyot, who studied these particular volcanoes in the mid 19th century. Most guyots are found in the Pacific Ocean and are often topped with coral reefs
Geologists theorize that guyots once were seamounts, ocean volcanoes that have peaked summits like most volcanoes on land. Over time, waves eroded the summit, flattening the peak. As the ocean floor eroded beneath these volcanoes, they dropped further below the ocean floor. Some guyots' summits are 3,000 feet below sea level.
