Oceanic intraplate volcanoes exposed: Example from seamounts accreted in Panama

Buchs, David; Arculus, Richard; Baumgartner, Peter; Ulianov, Alexey


Two Paleogene ocean islands are exposed in the Azuero Peninsula, west Panama, within sequences accreted in the early-Middle Eocene. A multidisciplinary approach involving lithologic mapping, paleontological age determinations, and petrological study allows reconstruction of the stratigraphy and magmatic evolution of one of these intraplate oceanic volcanoes. From base to top, the volcano's structure comprises submarine basaltic lava flows locally interlayered with hemipelagic sediments,...[Show more]
