The concept of mantle plumes is a key to understanding intraplate volcanism in the framework of modern plate tectonics. Recent progress in instrumental, analytical and satellite technology enables scientists to verify the plume hypothesis with seismic tomography, isotope geochemistry and other sophisticated techniques. In this book, a group of experts review these advances in plume research and present a general overview on recent plume studies.2005) succeeded in yielding high precision neon isotope measurements for subcontinental mantle ... in spite of the analytical problems, there is an important argument demonstrating the necessity of such precise neon measurements.
