Abstract

Episodes of magmatism have resulted in the emplacement of LIP's including CFB and associated intrusive provinces; volcanic passive margins; oceanic plateaus; submarine ridges; ocean basin flood basalts; and seamount groups.In the oceanic realm, high-quality seismic data and a few scientific drill holes have shown that volcanic margins and oceanic plateaus comprise extensive constuctions of extrusive igneous rock. In some cases volcanic margins and oceanic plateaus share temporal, spatial, and compositional characteristics with CFBs. The sizes and distribution of LIPs on a global scale demonstrates that their emplacements are major geological events (Fig 1.)
