The entire plateau is older than the Miocene ( a geological period that
ended roughly 7 million years ago), and must have started forming when
the Atlantic Ocean began expanding in the Cretaceous period, which en-
ded roughly 65 million years ago. 

Substantial parts of the plateau were once above water and there has
been a great deal of uplift and dowfaulting in the past.

Kukal, however, like most other geologists, does not accept the idea of
recent catastrophes.  He agrees that most of the Atlantic islands, includ-
ing the larger ones, were formed in relatively short and sporadic periods
of volcanic activity, separated by much longer periods of quiescence.  But
he feels it is unlikely that the Azores plateau could have been above water
to any great degree in 10,000 BC.
