Earth’s Most Devastating Mass Extinctions Triggered By Slowing Of Continental Plates: Study

In a new discovery, scientists have shed light on major volcanic eruptions that occurred millions of years ago and the cause behind them. The new research published in the journal Science Advances says that a slowing of continental plate movement was the critical event that enabled magma to rise to the Earth’s surface and deliver the devastating knock-on impacts.

The research suggests a slowing of continental plate movement was the critical event that enabled magma to rise to the Earth’s surface and deliver the devastating knock-on impacts, reported ANI.

Earth’s history has been marked by major volcanic events, called Large Igneous Provinces (LIPs) — the largest of which have caused major increases in atmospheric carbon emissions that warmed Earth’s climate, drove unprecedented changes to ecosystems and resulted in mass extinctions on land and in the oceans.
