New England Hotspot

The New England hotspot, also referred to as the Great Meteor hotspot, is a long-lived volcanic hotspot in the Atlantic Ocean. The hotspot's most recent eruptive center is the Great Meteor Seamount, and it probably created a short line of mid to late-Tertiary age seamounts on the African Plate but appears to be currently inactive.

The New England hotspot track is used to estimate the movement of the North American Plate away from the African Plate from early Cretaceous period to the present.

The New England hotspot has been overridden by the Mid-Atlantic Ridge.

Famous quotes containing the word england:

    It seemed a long way from 143rd Street. Shaking hands with the Queen of England was a long way from being forced to sit in the colored section of the bus going into downtown Wilmington, North Carolina. Dancing with the Duke of Devonshire was a long way from not being allowed to bowl in Jefferson City, Missouri, because the white customers complained about it.
