Abstract null null Characterization of spatially distributed volcanism includes analysis of vent alignments, zones of high probability density and cluster membership assignment. Attempts to identify patterns from the spatial distribution of vents have resorted to various methods with the underlying assumption that results from any of those methods should provide quantitative evidence concerning the structure of the array. In contrast, the physical conditions leading to the creation of specific p...

Abstract null null Loess deposits intercalated by paleosols are detailed terrestrial archives of Quaternary climate variability providing information on the global dust cycle and landscape dynamics. Their paleoclimatic significance is often explored by quantifying their mineral magnetic properties due to their sensitivity to local/regional hydroclimate variability. Detailed chronological assessment of such regional proxy records around the climatic transitions allow a better understanding of how...

Abstract null null The late Paleozoic Ice Age (LPIA) was one of Earth's most important Phanerozoic climatic events lasting for over 100 Mys. Despite its importance, its history is controversial with two hypotheses that portray glaciation differently ( Fig. 1 ). Traditional views characterize the LPIA as a continuous glacial event that lasted from the Middle Mississippian until the Late Permian with a massive ice sheet that covered Gondwana throughout this interval. This approach often uses only ...

Abstract null null The Bastar Craton occupies a key position in the Peninsular India, being located between three cratonic nuclei of India, the Dharwar Craton in the southwest, the Singhbhum Craton in the northeast, and the Bundelkhand Craton in the northwest. The southeastern and the northern margins of the craton are bordered by the Proterozoic orogenic belts constituting the Eastern Ghats Mobile Belt and the Central Indian Tectonic Zone (the Satpura Mobile Belt), respectively. Analysis of the...

Abstract null null The Greater India Proterozoic Fold Belt (GIPFOB) is a curved highly tectonized zone dominated by Early Paleoproterozoic to Early Neoproterozoic magmatic and metamorphic rocks extending from NW India (Aravalli Delhi Fold Belt, ADFB) through central India (the Satpura Mobile Belt, SMB) to eastern India (the Chottanagpur Gneiss Complex, CGC). The continuity of the crustal domains within GIPFOB is obscured by the Gondwana Formation, the Mesozoic Deccan basalts, the intertrappean B...

Abstract null null The modification of magmas through mixing or through assimilation of country rocks is commonly inferred from various chemical and isotopic features of magma suites and supported by a variety of field evidence, ranging from features indicative of interaction between two magmas, disaggregation of solids in a magma, and varied antecryst populations in volcanic and plutonic rocks. The increased recognition that mushes are important long-term reservoirs of magma linked across the c...

Abstract null null Global warming is exacerbating weather, and climate extremes events and is projected to aggravate multi-sectorial risks. A multiplicity of climate hazards will be involved, triggering cumulative and interactive impacts on a variety of natural and human systems. null An improved understanding of risk interactions and dynamics is required to support decision makers in their ability to better manage current and future climate change risks. To face this issue, the research communi...

Abstract Detailed mapping of major-scale volcanic centres on Venus provides a complementary view to terrestrial large igneous provinces (LIPs). On Venus, the surface flood basalt relationships are preserved owing to the absence of erosion, but the plumbing system is only indirectly revealed. In contrast, erosion on Earth dissects flood basalt packages and can directly reveal the plumbing system of mafic dykes, sills and larger intrusions. Herein we report on detailed mapping at 1:500,000 scale o...
