Dear Colleagues,

We invite submissions to our session V022: "Hotspots and Plumes - an Interdisciplinary Examination of the Critical Link Between Deep and Shallow Earth Processes”

Session description: Hotspots and mantle plumes constitute a critical pathway by which deeply stored materials are brought to the surface, linking the classical plate tectonics model with a longer deep mantle cyclic storage hypothesis. Our evolving understanding of the dynamics of the lower mantle has ignited debate about the origin and evolution of heterogeneous deep mantle reservoirs. Central to these debates are the geochemical, geophysical, and geodynamic insights into the origin, evolution, and characteristics of a diverse range of hotspots. This session will focus upon a collective interweaving the disparate strands of knowledge within the field to yield a coherent tapestry describing the roles played by mantle plumes and hotspots in Earth processes. We welcome contributions from all disciplines studying plumes and hotspots and encourage authors to consider how their work might fit into the larger narrative outlined above.

Abstracts are due by 3 August 2022 23:59 EDT (GMT-4).

Kind regards,

Tyrone O. Rooney, Valerie A. Finlayson, Matthew G. Jackson, and Aaron J. Pietruszka
