Hotspot Volcanism: Thermal Plume - IRIS Consortium

Hotspot Volcanism: Thermal Plume - IRIS Consortium

A volcanic hotspot is an area in the mantle from which heat rises as a thermal plume from deep in the Earth. High heat and lower pressure at the base of the lithosphere (tectonic plate) facilitates melting of the rock. This melt, called magma, rises through cracks and erupts to form volcanoes. As the tectonic plate moves over the stationary ...

Dec 17, 2014 Scientific models depict these plumes of molten rock almost like a lava lamp, with a rising bulbous head fed by a long, narrow tail that originates in the mantle. As the plume head reaches the lithosphere, it spreads into a mushroom shape that reaches roughly 500 to 1000 kilometers (310 to 621 miles) in diameter. These features are called diapirs.

Resolving the Mantle Plume Heat Transfer Discrepancy

Resolving the Mantle Plume Heat Transfer Discrepancy

Estimates of the buoyancy and heat flux of upwelling mantle plumes are important for understanding many aspects of convection within the Earth. These fluxes influence melt productivity and geochemistry at mid-oceanic spreading centres and hotspots, dynamic topography, mantle mixing timescales and Earth's bulk heat budget. The majority of existing …

Feb 01, 2003 The plume should also have direct effects on heat flow. First, outward-flowing plume material should heat the base of already-formed lithosphere. This effect would be similar to that at Hawaii, but larger because heat is added at the base of the lithosphere, which is thinner near Iceland because of its relative youth.

Feb 06, 2013 However, it remains hotly debated whether mantle plumes exist. For example, Massachusetts Institute of Technology seismologist Qin Cao and her colleagues used seismic waves to image activity beneath Hawaii; instead of finding a narrow mantle plume, they discovered that a giant thermal anomaly about 500–1,250 miles (800–2,000 km) wide located …

Feb 06, 2013 The concept of mantle plumes began in 1963 with the enigma of the Hawaiian volcanoes, which dwell more than 2,000 miles (3,200 km) from the nearest plate boundary. Scientists think that as the Pacific plate slid over a “hot spot,” a line of volcanoes blossomed. In 1971, geophysicist W. Jason Morgan proposed that hot spots resulted from ...

Mantle convection is the principal mechanism by which heat is transferred from the deep Earth to the surface. Cold subducting slabs sink into the mantle and steadily warm, whilst upwelling plumes carry heat to the base of lithospheric plates where it can subsequently escape by conduction. Accurate estimation of the total heat carried by these plumes is important for …

Define mantle plume and explain its role in plate tectonics.

Mantle plume is an upwelling of abnormally hot rock within the earth’s mantle which carries heat upward in narrow, rising columns, driven by heat exchange across the core-mantle boundary. Eventually, the rising column of hot rock reaches the base of the lithosphere, where it spreads out, forming a mushroom-shaped cap to the plume.

What are Mantle Plumes? (with pictures) - Info Bloom

Mar 26, 2022 Date: March 26, 2022. Mantle plumes are a mechanism for cooling the Earth's core. Mantle plumes are powerful geological events that consist of a large bulb of magma from the mantle, hundreds of miles across, rising into the upper crust and triggering major volcanism. Visually, they would look similar to the rising shapes in a lava lamp.

Sep 22, 2006 A hot plume would slow the part of a seismic wave that passes through it from an earthquake to a seismometer. But the slowed segment of the wave—which in a tomographic analysis would paint a splotch of warm mantle in the image—could then “heal” before ever being recorded, much as an ocean wave can reform after passing around the piling ...

Subsequent plume models have generally assumed that the uplift results from the dynamic effects of rising plumes [Liu and Chase, 1989; Sleep, 1994] and the associated compositional buoyancy.The thermal effects of these are postulated to be concentrated at the base of the lithosphere and thus to raise surface heat flow at most slightly, because tens of millions of …
