Abstract: Ocean islands are subject to vertical movements through their lifetime and these movements' origins are poorly understood. Tracking island freeboard provides insight into the mechanisms that cause these movements. The Cape Verde archipelago is the result of hotspot volcanism ranging from 26 Ma to the present, and constitutes a structural pile that has preserved a record of the palaeo-positions of mean sea level. These palaeo-markers, both sedimentary and volcanic, are datable and can… Expand
