    the Deccan continental flood basalt province, Western Ghats, continental flood basalts are Late Permian to Early Jurassic in age, and are thought to have been associated with a period Baffin Bay/West Greenland, the Rockall Plateau, and the Voring Plateau off north-west Norway Except where stated, the data in this section on. A flood basalt or trap basalt is the result of a giant volcanic eruption or series of eruptions that coats large stretches of land or the ocean floor with basalt lava.. Flood basalts have covered areas as large as a continent in prehistory, creating great plateaus and mountain basalts have erupted at various times throughout Earth are clear evidence that .

    The Central Atlantic Magmatic Province (CAMP) is defined by tholeiitic basalts that crop out in once-contiguous parts of North America, Europe, Africa, and South America and is associated with the breakup of Pangea. 40Ar/39Ar and paleomagnetic data indicate that CAMP magmatism extended over an area of million square kilometers in north and central Brazil, and the total . F lood volcanism [[HN1][1]] is an episodic process whereby vast amounts of mass and energy are transferred from Earth's interior to its surface within a relatively short time. Such events have occurred about a dozen times during the last several hundred million years. There is increasing geochronological [[HN2][2]] evidence that in each of these events, the magma [[HN3][3]] was .

      Though there are no flood basalts erupting on Earth today, we see the many thin layers of lava of past eruptions stacked up in western India, Brazil, Antarctica, the Columbia River, and elsewhere. 1. High MgO Grande Ronde basalt. 2. Roza Member of the Wanapum Basalt. 3. Pomona Member of Saddle Mountains Basalt. Volcanism began about million years ago and ceased about 6 million years ago. Most of the volume of the Columbia River Flood Basalt Province (85%) was erupted in only million years from 17 to million years ago.

We present a paleomagnetic record of the C27n-C26r ( Ma) geomagnetic polarity reversal (GPR) sampled in two separate lava sequences in the Vaigat Formation, west Greenland flood basalt province.

Representative continental flood basalts (also known as traps) and oceanic plateaus, together forming a listing of large igneous provinces. See also. List of Oceanic Landforms; World's largest eruptions; Footnotes.

Rapp Gronlands Geol Unders –16 Google Scholar Hald N (b) Normally magnetized lower tertiary lavas on Nugssuaq, central West by:   Courtillot et al.1 have presented palaeomagnetic, palaeontological and K–Ar data for the Deccan flood basalts which suggest that > km3 of basalt may have been erupted in Cited by: Twelve sites (57 drill cores) from two lava series and one dike were sampled for a palaeomagnetic study of the late Paleocene and early Eocene West Greenland flood basalts.

Other articles where Flood basalt is discussed: plateau: Formative processes: lava flows (called flood basalts or traps) and volcanic ash bury preexisting terrain, as exemplified by the Columbia Plateau in the northwestern United States.

The volcanism involved in such situations is commonly associated with hot spots. The lavas and ash are generally carried long distances from their. The lower m of the Tertiary lava pile on Mull, western Scotland, consists mainly of small volume (–1 km3), high-magnesian basaltic lava flows.

Eruption of these flows probably occurred from fissures or point-source vents, producing pahoehoe-textured sheets averaging about 5 m in thickness.

Certain lavas cropping out in northwest Mull greatly exceed this. The accumulation of flood basalts of the Deccan Traps, western India, is one of the most remarkable volcanic provinces on Earth in sheer extent and volume.

These rocks are akin in composition and occurrence to other extensive continental basalt provinces, usually located near plate margins, but distributed worldwide and of various ages1.

Recent interest in the Deccan flood basalts. In the late Oligocene-early Miocene through to the present time, large volumes of flood basalts emplaced at discrete eruptive centres along the western margin of the Arabian plate from the Gulf of Aden to the Mediterra- nean.

These plateau basalts are concentrated on the Ara- bian side of the Red Sea without matching counterparts. A Model for Flood Basalt Vulcanism by K. COX Department of Geology and Mineralogy, Parks Road, Oxford, U.K. (Received 15 June ; in revised form 19 October ) ABSTRACT The question of whether basaltic rocks in continental flood basalt provinces are primary magmas or whether they are descended in general from picritic parent magmas is.

In the nunataks of the Prince of Wales Mountains the tholeiite flood basalts of the East Greenland Tertiary Province are unconformably overlain by alkaline lavas.

The majority of the alkaline lavas are strongly porphyritic picrites, ankaramites and hawaiites. These rocks have lower Nd/Nd and higher 87Sr/86Sr than the tholeiitic flood basalts and are isotopically akin to ocean island basalts.

The accumulation of flood basalts of the Deccan Traps, western India, is one of the most remarkable volcanic provinces on Earth in sheer extent and volume. These rocks are akin in composition and. FLOOD BASALTS or LARGE IGNEOUS PROVINCES (LIP) Atlantic Flood Basalts Greenland ‐North Atlantic basalts were erupted.

Dating Early K/Ar dating indicated eruptions over 40‐50 Myr. Modern 40Ar/39Ar dating narrows this down to under 2. Their similarity to other Flood Basalts, eg of Antarctica, is marked.

Two small groups of lavas, one highly magnesian, analysed by Kerr, (, ); (, ) for the Plateau Lavas of Mull, do not have a distinct flood basalt fingerprint but have high Ba, variable K and a slightly -ve Nb, and moderately high silica (%). Continental flood basalts have been receiving considerable scientific attention lately.

Recent publications have focused on several particular flood‐basalt. Deccan flood basalts and the Cretaceous/ Tertiary boundary The combined analysis of our new data and a review of previous work thus leads us to suggest that the Deccan trap eruption may have been a truly catastrophic event, probably one of the largest such events in the last Ma of Earth history Average extrusion rates could have been in.

Kent C. Condie, in Earth as an Evolving Planetary System (Third Edition), Continental Flood Basalts. Flood basalts are thick successions of basalt erupted onto the continents over short periods of time, like the Columbia River Basalts in the NW United States and the Deccan Traps in India (Figure ).They are composed chiefly of the tholeiitic basalt flows, and like.

A flood basalt is the result of a giant volcanic eruption or series of eruptions that covers large stretches of land or the ocean floor with basalt basalt provinces such as the Deccan Traps of India are often called traps, after the Swedish word trappa (meaning "stairs"), due to the characteristic stairstep geomorphology of many associated landscapes.

EAST GREENLAND FLOOD BASALT PROVINCE. The East Greenland flood basalt province covers an area of 65, km 2 with lava sequences >6 km thick approaching the coast (Pedersen et al., ) (Fig. F1).High-resolution chemical stratigraphy of the flood basalts has shown that the succession can be divided into two series (Fig.

The great continental flood-basalt eruptions of the geological past are the largest eruptions of lava on Earth, with known volumes of individual lava flows exceeding cubic kilometres.

For comparison, the ongoing eruption of Kilauea volcano on Hawaii has produced just cubic kilometres in 16 years! A "flood basalt" is the result of a giant volcanic eruption or series of eruptions that coats large stretches of land or the ocean floor with basalt lava.
