Background:

Sao Nicolau, located the eastern end of an E-W-trending chain of islands in the NW Cape Verde islands, was constructed in four stages dating back to the Pliocene. The last two stages took place during the Pleistocene, and the youngest stage produced scoria cones and lava flows about 50,000 years ago.
