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: pre-breakup and rifting;
  • Theme II: seafloor spreading;
  • Theme III: mantle-derived heterogeneity (including plumes and large-igneous provinces);
  • Theme IV: subduction related volcanism, and
  • Theme V: HALIP and environmental effects.
