It is less than that of the mantle, which ranges between 106 and 108. Therefore, the primary mode of heat transfer is conduction. 4 Estimation of Dynamic Uplift Inferring the magnitude of plume related uplift depends on the availability of data and timing of the uplift. A summary of different techniques used for estimation of timing of uplift and erosion is given by Anell et al. (2009; Table 1, p. 82). For present-day dynamic uplift, such as those in Iceland and North Atlantic, long wavelength free-air gravity anomaly and anomalous bathymetry of the affected ocean basin have been used successfully in estimating the amount of uplift.
6). The different mechanisms generating the lithospheric uplift can be summarized as: 1. Dynamic uplift is generated when abnormally hot mantle is emplaced beneath the lithosphere. The support mechanism is a combination of impact of the plume, buoyancy due to ponding of the plume material below the lithosphere (Guillou-Frottier et al. 2007) and thermo-mechanical erosion at the base of the lithosphere (Davies 1994; d’Acremont et al. 2003). It is indicated by a positive Fig. 6 Uplift above a plume head, as predicted by Grifﬁths and Campbell (1991), compared with the uplift observed at the center of the Emeishan flood basalt by He et al.
As the contrast increases, the plume conduit becomes narrower and the head becomes broader, mushroom shaped, allowing the plume to rise more efﬁciently through the mantle. Nevertheless, a great variety of shapes are also possible if the density contrasts due to chemical variations are taken into account (Farnetani and Samuel 2005; Lin and van Keken 2006). 3 Characteristics of Plumes The plumes can be characterized as follows (Campbell 2006, 2007; Campbell and Davies 2006): 1. New plumes consist of a large head followed by a narrow tail.
