Cenozoic evolution of the Icelandic Plume and its influence upon the topographic evolution of Northwest Europe

Nicky White
The Icelandic mantle plume is probably the largest convective upwelling on Earth. It is generally agreed that its growth and evolution have had a significant influence on the geologic and oceanographic evolution of both the North Atlantic Ocean and Northwest Europe during Cenozoic times. At the present day, three significant observations testify to the existence and size of this plume. First, residual depth anomalies prevail in the oceanic lithosphere surrounding Iceland. These anomalies show that...
