About this book Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Geodynamics Series, Volume Geophysical imaging techniques and petrologic probes are yielding dramatic new evidence of the structure and dynamic impact of mantle on plate kinematics. The need for an up-to-date review volume on a sizable subset of the major continental and oceanic flood basalt provinces, termed large igneous provinces, was recognized by the Commission on Large-Volume Basaltic Provinces (International Association of Volcanology and Chemistry of the Earth's Interior), and the co-editors were charged with.

The existence of Archean continental lithospheric mantle defines cratons (Figs. 1B, C, 2B, D, F; Artemieva and Mooney, ; Plomerova et al., ), and it is more buoyant and refractory than mantle lithosphere beneath younger continental regions; its thickness and thermal structure lead to the preservation of diamonds (Fig. 2B, C).

Drumlins are ubiquitous on former ice sheet beds and are probably the most extensively studied bedform produced beneath glaciers (e.g. Menzies, a, Menzies, , Clark et al., ).The ‘text-book’ description of a drumlin typically describes them as streamlined oval-shaped hills with a long axis parallel to the orientation of ice flow and with an up-ice Cited by: IN THE EARTH'S UPPER MANTLE Henry J.
