Record #109707:

Hotspots, mantle plumes, flood basalts, and true polar wander / R.A. Duncan, Mark A. Richards.

Title: Hotspots, mantle plumes, flood basalts, and true polar wander / R.A. Duncan, Mark A. Richards.
Author(s): Duncan, R. A.
Richards, Mark A.
Date: 1991.
In: Reviews of Geophysics. (1991.), Vol. 29(1) (1991)
Abstract: Reviews evidence for interhotspot motion and examines whether hotspot lineaments constitute useful frame of reference for plate motions. "True polar wander" refers to motion of entire mantle relative to Earth's spin axis as indicated by evidence cited in paper.
Notes:

Reviews of Geophysics. Vol. 29(1) :31-50 (1991).

Keywords: 550.3 -- Geophysics.
