Volcanic bombshell So how do you explain the progression in age seen in chains of volcanoes such as those at Hawaii, the trait that led to the birth of mantle plume theory in the first place? The answer might be found in Yellowstone, once an archetype of a plume-fed hot spot. Although there is a chain of progressively older volcanoes marching from Yellowstone towards Idaho, a variety of seismic studies from a number of plume-hunters have shown no signs of hot magma below a depth of 200 kilometres and no disturbance in the mantle below that. "Yellowstone was supposed to be the grandaddy of all continental plumes. It's a huge volcanic centre but its status as a plume has evaporated," says Dean Presnall, a petrologist with the University of Texas at Dallas. Anderson's idea seems to fit instead, says Foulger, now working with the Volcano Hazards Team at the US Geological Survey in Menlo Park, California.
