The Azores Plateau is characterized by very low sedimentary fluxes. These consist of pelagic oozes slightly diluted by volcanogenic material. Sedimentary processes are controlled by (1) current activity: during at least the last three glacial periods the Gulf Stream has winnowed fine particles at depth shallower than 1 500 m, (2) the sea-bottom morphology: Mid-Atlantic ridge ponds act as sediment...
