Hotspot Geology

In Geology, a hotspot or hot spot is a portion of the Earth's surface which experiences volcanism. This may be caused by a rising mantle plume or some other cause. A volcanic hotspot is where lava pushes up from under the mantle and creates a volcano.Geologists have identified some 40-50 such hotspots around the globe, with Hawaii, Reunion, Yellowstone, Galapagos.
