    irregularly spaced areas within the mantle that do not correspond with any plate tectonic processes. It was thought 50 years ago high temperatures were found at hot spots, so rocks within the region were liquefied to create molten magma, resulting in the term ‘hot spot volcanos’. The accepted theory for the formation of hotspots was put forward by Geophysicist John Tuzo-Wilson in 1963, who specified the Earth has areas of fixated magma plumes deep within the mantle that have been created from intense
