User: what is a seamount

Weegy: The best explanation of why seamounts sink involves how the earth?s crust forms and spreads in response to heating and cooling. As an area of the earth?s crust passes over a hot spot, or moves away from a spreading ridge, it cools and contracts. As it cools, the crust becomes denser, and sinks into the mantle.



User: pyroclastic

Weegy: Pyroclastic rocks are clastic rocks composed solely or primarily of volcanic materials. ............
