The source of Yellowstone's heat U.S. Geological Survey

Apr 16, 2018 The Yellowstone hotspot has long been suspected to be part of a mantle plume—a region of the mantle that is hot but still solid and that is buoyantly upwelling. Mantle plumes may originate from the boundary between Earth's mantle and core, nearly 3000 km (about 1850 mi) beneath the surface.

mantle plumes Science Of Cycles News and Research

Aug 01, 2017 When Earth overheats, it finds its way to maintain its ambient temperature. In very much the same way humans sweat through our pores to cool off, in like manner, Earth sweats by producing increased mantle plume activity.. New research released this week confirms increased heat from Earth’s core strengthens the flow viscous material (liquefied rock) upward through …

Hot Spot Volcanism National Geographic Society

Hot Spot Volcanism National Geographic Society

Dec 17, 2014 Hot spot volcanism is unique because it does not occur at the boundaries of Earth’s tectonic plates, where all other volcanism occurs. Instead it occurs at abnormally hot centers known as mantle plumes. 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 …

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.

Mantle Plumes and Heat Flow. A mantle plume is a thermal diapir of hot rock that nucleates at the core-mantle boundary and rises through the Earth's mantle. Such plumes were invoked in 1971 to explain volcanic regions that were not thought to be explicable by the then-new theory of plate tectonics. Some of these volcanoes lie far from tectonic ...

Mar 26, 2022 Mantle plumes are believed to be a primary mechanism for cooling the Earth's core, which is a superheated ball of solid iron and nickel. The plumes are also a method of cooling the mantle, but it is believed to be a distant second to …

Nov 07, 2017 However, seismic imaging has shown that mantle heat in this region may reach the ice sheet through a rift, that is, a fracture in Earth's crust such as appears in Africa's Great Rift Valley. Mantle plumes are thought to be narrow streams of hot rock rising through Earth's mantle and spreading out like a mushroom cap under the crust.

Nov 23, 2009 The plates comprise the cool, upper thermal boundary layer of the convecting mantle, and the cycle of creation, cooling, subduction, and reheating of plates is the dominant means by which heat is removed from the Earth's interior. Plumes arise mainly from a hot thermal boundary layer that is probably located at the base of the mantle, and they ...

Heat Flow Asymmetry in Mantle Plumes SpringerLink

Heat Flow Asymmetry in Mantle Plumes SpringerLink

Oct 19, 2020 Abstract All known mantle plumes are characterized by a divergence between the location of the extreme heat flow and the recent volcanism center. To explain this phenomenon, it is proposed to consider the Coriolis effect influence, which deflects the magma flow within a mantle plume from the trajectory that is orthogonal to the planet surface. A formula was used …

Mantle plumes and continental tectonics - NASA/ADS

The heat from plume tails may weaken the overlying plate and pin the position of spreading. The ascent of a mantle plume can also have an important influence on subduction. Large oceanic plateaus, such as the Ontong-Java Plateau, are more buoyant than normal oceanic crust because they have a thicker basaltic layer and because they are underlain ...
