Global gravity, bathymetry, and the distribution of submarine volcanism through space and time

Abstract:

The seafloor is characterized by numerous seamounts and oceanic islands which are mainly volcanic in origin. Relatively few of these features (<∼0.1%), however, have been dated, and so little is known about their tectonic setting. One parameter that is sensitive to whether a seamount formed on, near, or far from a mid-ocean ridge is the elastic thickness, Te, which is a proxy for the long-term strength of the lithosphere. Most previous studies are based on using the bathymetry to calculate...
