The first section of the volume is concerned mainly with models of magma generation and break­up processes. Critical to the debate is the origin of the large continental flood basalt provinces and the difficult task of interpreting geochemical signatures. The remaining sections present examples from the geological record. They provide essential feedback to the models and it is clear that some.

A two-day meeting of the Tectonic Studies Group was held in London at the Geological Society on October , to consider relationships between continental extension, super continent break-up, magmatism and mantle plumes. The approach was multidisciplinary, with contributions from geophysists, geochemists and tectonic geologists.

This book brings together articles that explore the role of magmatism in rifting, from the initiation of continental break-up through to full seafloor spreading. We also explore the hazards related to rifting and the associated volcanism. continental break-up related magmatic activity recorded by basalt flows, magmatic underplates, and intrusive complexes. Drilling of the volcanic complexes and nearby sedimentary basins may provide important new insight into mantle melting processes and how magmatism may have caused rapid climate change in the earliest Eocene.

A source of sufficiently large renewable extensional stress to cause lithospheric failure is the hot, low-density upper mantle of the type associated with a plume. Widespread extensional stress may also result from subduction on opposite sides of a large continental plate.
