Released by way of the yankee Geophysical Union as a part of the Geophysical Monograph sequence, quantity 100.
Continental flood basalts, volcanic passive margins, and oceanic plateaus characterize the most important identified volcanic episodes on our planet, but they aren't simply defined by means of plate tectonics. certainly, a few are inclined to list classes whilst the outward move of fabric and effort from the Earth's inside operated in a considerably diversified mode than at the present. lately, curiosity in large-scale mafic magmatism has surged as high-precision geochronological, specific geochemical, and more and more subtle geophysical info became to be had for plenty of provinces. even if, the sheer volume of contemporary fabric, frequently within the kind of specific collaborative learn tasks, can weigh down beginners to the sphere and specialists alike because the literature keeps to develop dramatically. the necessity for an up to date evaluate quantity on a large subset of the most important continental and oceanic flood basalt provinces, termed huge igneous provinces, was once famous via the fee on Large-Volume Basaltic Provinces (International organization of Volcanology and Chemistry of the Earth's Interior), and the co-editors have been charged with organizing and enforcing this sort of quantity. we are hoping that this quantity may be priceless to researchers and graduate scholars around the globe, quite to petrologists, geochemists, geochronologists, geodynamicists, and plate-tectonics experts; it may possibly additionally curiosity planetologists, oceanographers, and atmospheric scientists.
