EGU2014: Highlight Tuesday

The number 1 highlight of Tuesday was the Arthur Holmes medal lecture by Kevin C.A. Burke: Plume Generation Zones On The Core Mantle Boundary: their origin and what they tell about how the Earth works – and how it has worked.

Burke, who due to health issues had to remain seated during his hour-long lecture, captivated his audience with his warm and humoristic and insightful review on how and where in the Earth’s interior volcanic plumes are formed. If you are interested in large igneous provinces, flood basalts, hot spots etc I strongly recommend you to check out the streamlined talk at the EGU2014 website.
