This site provides a broad suite of information and resources about "hot spots" and the current debate as to their existence. The site features technical tutorials and publications on a variety of mantle plume topics divided into four main categories: localities, mechanisms, generic, and other resources. The site also includes links to current news articles, information about conferences and meetings, and additional resources. Suggestions and contributions to the site are encouraged.
