A recent drilling leg on the Ontong Java Plateau and subsequent studies have consolidated the following observation for this gigantic oceanic plateau: The bulk of the plateau was formed at ~120 Ma in a submarine environment. This rapid construction of a massive igneous body below sea level is impossible to explain with the popular plume head hypothesis. Though the bolide impact hypothesis for oceanic plateaus has recently been resurrected to offer an alternative, it is shown here that it fails… CONTINUE READING
