Record #118323:

Antipodal hotspot pairs on the Earth / Michael R. Rampino, Ken Caldeira.

Title: Antipodal hotspot pairs on the Earth / Michael R. Rampino, Ken Caldeira.
Author(s): Rampino, Michael R.
Caldeira, Ken.
Date: 1992.
In: Geophysical Research Letters. (1992.), Vol. 19(20) (1992)
Abstract: Presents results of statistical analyses performed on three published hotspot distributions suggesting that significantly more hotspots occur as nearly antipodal pairs than would be anticipated from random distribution, or from association with geoid highs and divergent plate margins. Possible polar antipodal hotspots are Kerguelen/Yellowstone, Crozet/Cobb, and Mt Erebus/Jan Mayen.
Notes:
