Volcanism continued in the Pacific in the Early Cenozoic era. But the Mid-Pacific Mountains and other underwater ridges now lying at a depth of many kilometres gradually began to sink. Coral islands and atolls started to grow in place of the submerged Tuamotu Ridge; other oceanic volcanoes and mountains also acquired their coral "tombstones". Some, however, were unable to leave traces of their existence on the surface of the ocean. Coral colonies did not settle on their peaks, the peaks were planed almost flat by wave erosion, and today a tremendous number of submarine volcanoes-called guyots-with broad, almost flat, tops is to be found in the Pacific.

Nor was it intended that they should be dragged out. I t cannot be accidental, Professor Zubov said, that all the statues stand with their faces turned towards the centre of the crater. Professor Zubov considered the fact that all the statues were made according to a single pattern to be even more weighty evidence in support of his theory. There was no question here of any sort of creativity, of any quest for something new. You did not have to be an artist to carve a statue. All you needed was diligence.

And rise. The relief changed as well as the climate. Mountains rose, volcanoes erupted (Mt Elbrus in the Caucasus was an active volcano several thousand years ago), and the configuration of the ocean floor was altered. Along with the climate and the relief 'the organic world of our planet also changed. The appearance or melting of glaciers in the temperate zone led to fluctuations in sea level. An idea of how great these were can be gained from the International Geophysical Year data on the approximate volume of ice that covers Antarctica and parts of the other continents.
