Our understanding of the dynamics of plate motions is based almost entirely upon modeling of present-day plate motions. A fuller understanding, how- ever, can be derived from consideration of theExpand

Synchrony and Causal Relations Between Permian-Triassic Boundary Crises and Siberian Flood Volcanism
The Permian-Triassic boundary records the most severe mass extinctions in Earth's history. Siberian flood volcanism, the most profuse known such subaerial event, produced 2 million to 3 million cubicExpand

Flood Basalts and Hot-Spot Tracks: Plume Heads and Tails
Continental flood basalt eruptions have resulted in sudden and massive accumulations of basaltic lavas in excess of any contemporary volcanic processes. The largest flood basalt events mark theExpand

Long-wavelength variations in Earth’s geoid: physical models and dynamical implications
The seismic velocity anomalies resolved by seismic tomography are associated with variations in density that lead to convective flow and to dynamically maintained topography at the Earth’s surface,Expand

Hotspots, mantle plumes, flood basalts, and true polar wander
Persistent, long-lived, stationary sites of excessive mantle melting are called hotspots. Hotspots leave volcanic trails on lithospheric plates passing across them. The global constellation of fixedExpand

State shift in Deccan volcanism at the Cretaceous-Paleogene boundary, possibly induced by impact
Making an impact in more ways than one Massive eruptions formed the Deccan Traps flood basalts in India at around the same time as the mass extinction event 65 million years ago. Renne et al.Expand

Lower mantle heterogeneity, dynamic topography and the geoid
Density contrasts in the lower mantle, inferred using seismic tomography, drive viscous flow; this results in kilometres of dynamically maintained topography at the core–mantle boundary and at theExpand

Geoid Anomalies in a Dynamic Earth
In order to obtain a dynamically consistent relationship between the geoid and the earth's response to internal buoyancy forces, we have calculated potential and surface deformation Love numbers forExpand

A sensitivity study of three-dimensional spherical mantle convection at 108 Rayleigh number: Effects of depth-dependent viscosity, heating mode, and an endothermic phase change
Mantle convection is influenced simultaneously by a number of physical effects: brittle failure in the surface plates, strongly variable viscosity, mineral phase changes, and both internal heatingExpand
