The Cause of Excess Magmatism in the Northern Atlantic Margin

Semester: Spring 2024


Presentation description

Large Igneous Provinces are known to be prominent drivers of climate change in Earth's past. When the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum occurred, the North Atlantic Igneous Province was forming. In this project, the causes behind the formation of this province are examined through the lens of geothermometry, melting regimes, and composition of the mantle source using data from the International Ocean Discovery Program's Expedition 396.
