[1] The Amsterdam‐Saint Paul plateau results from a 10 Myr interaction between the South East Indian Ridge and the Amsterdam‐Saint Paul hot spot. During this period of time, the structure of the plateau changed as a consequence of changes in both the ridge‐hot spot relative distance and in the strength of the hot spot source. The joint analysis of(More)
The Foundation hotspot–Pacific-Antarctic Ridge (PAR) system is the best documented case of a fast spreading ridge approaching a hotspot and interacting with it. The morphology, crustal structure inferred from gravity anomalies and the chemical composition of the lavas of the axial area of the PAR show evidence of the influence of the hotspot, that is(More)
