About the Meeting

The AGU Chapman Conference on “Large-scale Volcanism in the Arctic: The Role of the Mantle and Tectonics” will focus on the diversity of Arctic magmatism and tectonics from the Paleozoic to present-day. The conveners are Owen Anfinson, Bernard Coakley, Carmen Gaina, and Grace Shephard. The program will focus on five themes including:

  • Theme I: rift-related magmatism;
  • Theme II: seafloor spreading and ridge-related magmatism;
  • Theme III: large-scale volcanism and the connection to mantle dynamics;
  • Theme IV: subduction related volcanism, and
  • Theme V: HALIP and environmental effects.
