The Superswell and Darwin Rise: Thermal No Longer?

This short online article, from the mantleplumes.org website, reviews the evidence for a thermal plume-related cause of the large shallow region in the western Pacific Ocean containing the Darwin ...

Superplumes from the core-mantle boundary to the base of the lithosphere: evidence from Q tomography

This page at the Berkeley Seismological Laboratory summarizes the recent results of imaging the superplume beneath the Pacific superswell region by the method of Q-tomography. The page includes ...

Superplume Formation Beneath An Ancient Slab

Graduate student Eh Tan, working with Michael Gurnis at the California Institute of Technology, has recently discovered a plausible mechanism of generating superplumes at the core mantle boundary. ...

Superplume Concept Applies To Tharsis Area On Mars

This online article, published by the now defunct Daily University Science News (the article is still available in their archives), reports on the proposal of Victor Baker and Shigenori Maruyama, ...

Cretaceous Superplume and the Mississippi Embayment

In this abstract for the 2000 Annual Meeting of the Geological Society of America, Cox and Van Arsdale suggest that pronounced uplift of the Mississippi Valley Graben region associated with Bermuda ...

Convection Plumes in the Lower Mantle

This is the classic 1971 Nature paper in which W.J. Morgan proposed deep mantle plumes for the origin of hotspots.

"Hotspots": Mantle Thermal Plumes

This website features the chapter on hotspots and mantle plumes in the online text "This Dynamic Earth: The Story of Plate Tectonics", published by the U.S. Geological ...

Beneath Yellowstone: Evaluating Plume and Nonplume Models Using Teleseismic Images of the Upper Mantle

In this online article published in GSA Today, the authors present recent teleseismic data bearing on the question of the depth of the mantle anomaly beneath Yellowstone, and the origin of hotspots ...

Rapid Earthquake Viewer

The Rapid Earthquake Viewer (REV) provides access to earthquake data from seismograph recording stations around the world. The Earthquake View lets users select an earthquake and see data at various ...

Teaching Mineralogy from the Core to the Crust
This Journal of Geoscience Education article discusses revising the typical sequence of a mineralogy course in order to enhance retention of information and facilitate learning. Beginning with the ...

Velocity structure of the Yellowstone hot spot from teleseismic tomography: Evidence for an upper mantle plume
This journal article uses modern seismic tomographic imaging and thorough analysis of related data to identify the source of volcanism for the Yellowstone hotspot. The study deployed a dense array of ...
