      Mantle plumes. localized upwelling currents of solid rock that are hotter, thus less dense, than the surrounding mantle. Hotspots Plate tectonics provides a framework for interpreting volcanism at plate boundaries, namely, along spreading ridges (divergent boundaries) and subduction zones (convergent boundaries).   "This new textbook is ideal for a graduate-level seminar on the ongoing controversy over plumes." (, ) "I have much pleasure in recommending this book, a distillation of global geodynamics information and ideas by a true leader in the field, for the libraries of institutions and individuals.".

    Hot mantle rock that rises toward the earth's surface in a narrow column is called a mantle plume. Plumes can be located beneath continental or oceanic crust or along plate boundaries. Plumes are thought to spread out laterally at the base of a continent, creating increased pressure that stretches the crust and results in uplift, fracturing. How to Cite.

    Large low-shear-velocity provinces, LLSVPs, also called LLVPs or superplumes, are characteristic structures of parts of the lowermost mantle (the region surrounding the outer core) of the Earth. These provinces are characterized by slow shear wave velocities and were discovered by seismic tomography of the deep Earth. There are two main provinces: the African LLSVP and the .   Thus, for over fifty years, plumes eluded researchers. Until now, perhaps. With repeated studies and massive data-crunching, wide plumes of low velocity mantle material have finally been discerned. Last fall an important paper was released. It makes the strong and well-supported claim that plumes are real, putting plume atheists on the spot.

The streaky mantle alternative to mantle plumes and bulk-Earth geochemical evolution Stofan, E.R. & S.E. Smrekar Large topographic rises, coronae, flow fields and volcanoes on Venus: evidence for mantle plumes.

Plumes are thought of as deep-rooted, approximately cylindrical regions of hot rising mantle rock with a typical diameter of km. Pressure-release melting near the b- tom of the lithosphere produces magmas that rise to the surface and lead, when the plate moves relative to the plume, to a chain of volcanic edifices whose age p- gresses.

Mantle plumes Convection in Earth's mantle created by the dissipation of internal heat produces up-welling hot columns called mantle plumes and cold, sinking sheets.

Mantle plumes are rising areas of buoyant asthenosphere. There is a certain amount of controversy surrounding their origin and real nature.

For example, Foulger () argued that the model of plumes originating at the core–mantle boundary does not fit with much geological data and rather proposed a more diverse range of mantle convection, circulation and differential.
