Ernst, Richard; Buchan, Kenneth; Campbell, Ian

Description

Earth history is punctuated by events during which large volumes of mafic magmas were generated and emplaced by processes distinct from "normal" seafloor spreading and subduction-related magmatism. Large Igneous Provinces (LIPs) of Mesozoic and Cenozoic age are the best preserved, and comprise continental flood basalts, volcanic rifted margins, oceanic plateaus, ocean basin flood basalts, submarine ridges, ocean islands and seamount chains.
