Information - GMPV27 Large igneous provinces and their impact on life and environment
Evidence of synchronism between the formation of many large igneous provinces (LIPs) emplacement and major rapid environmental and biotic crises has lead us to consider a causal relationship between these events. The testing of such a hypothesis requires a multidisciplinary approach to studies of the formation of LIPs and the consequences on life and the environment. We invite papers on the topic of the generation and eruptions of LIPs, including both basaltic and silicic examples, as well as studies of the factors that control the accumulation of large, eruptible magma bodies, the evolution and dynamics of such bodies (including magmatic volatile concentrations), the volcanology of large volume eruptions (effusive and explosive). Field-based studies on the climatic and environmental impact of large eruptions and atmospheric model-based assessments of the climatic and environmental impact of large igneous province eruptions are also welcome. Finally, paleontological studies of the impact of volcanism on flora and fauna and cross-disciplinary studies combining evidence from the ocean sedimentary and land records are encouraged.
