Global warming and mass extinctions associated with large igneous province volcanism (2021)
Book Chapter
Bond, D., & Sun, Y. (2021). Global warming and mass extinctions associated with large igneous province volcanism. In Environmental Change and Large Igneous Provinces: The Deadly Kiss of LIPs. American Geophysical Union

The coincidence of large igneous province (LIP) eruptions with at least three, if not all of the “Big Five” biotic crises of the Phanerozoic implies that volcanism is a key driver of mass extinctions. Many LIP-induced extinction scenarios invoke glob... Read More about Global warming and mass extinctions associated with large igneous province volcanism.

The temporal link between mass extinctions and large igneous provinces is well known. Here, we examine this link by focusing on the potential climatic effects of large igneous province eruptions during several extinction crises that show the best cor...
