Oceanic Hotspots: Intraplate Submarine Magmatism and by Roger Hekinian,Peter Stoffers,Jean-Louis Cheminée

By Roger Hekinian,Peter Stoffers,Jean-Louis Cheminée

Ocean Hotspots presents a complete evaluate of contemporary and ongoing study on intraplate volcanism within the ocean basins with distinct emphasis at the Pacific Ocean. The geology of the seamounts and their linked seamount chains is defined, besides designated geophysical, geochemical and hydrothermal observations made through a multi-disciplinary crew of marine geoscientists. those observations bring about a deeper knowing of the way the ascending mantle melts, represented through hotspots, may be able to penetrate the lithosphere, construct seamounts, and improve hydrothermal flow. The "fixed" hotspot-generated seamount chains additionally supply key constraints on plate tectonic reconstructions at the Earth's crust.
