S U M M A R Y Large igneous provinces (LIPs) lie approximately above the margins of the African and Pacific large low shear velocity provinces (LLSVPs) in the deep mantle. This spatial correlation has been used to argue that plumes are preferentially generated at the margins of LLSVPs. We perform a series of Monte Carlo–based statistical tests to assess the… CONTINUE READING
