Researchers from Heidelberg University and colleagues from Mexico have discovered remnants of such a large igneous province that resulted from vast lava flows.
Among the topics are Otto Renz (1906-92): pioneer of the Cretaceous and Paleogene stratigraphy of the Central Apennines, a history of the paleomagnetic investigations in the Umbria-Marche Apennines, whether the Rotalipora cushmani extinction at Gubbio is a planktonic foraminiferal testimonial of the onset of the Caribbean large igneous province emplacement, environmental fluctuations during the latest Cenomanian level in the Gubbio area based on an ichnofabric approach, and the Eocene Thermal Maximum 3: reading the environmental perturbations at Gubbio.
Rizo's team measured tungsten-182 in flood basalts from Canada's Baffin Bay (part of the roughly 60-million-year-old North Atlantic Igneous Province) and near the Solomon Islands (part of the roughly 120-million-year-old Ontong Java Plateau in the Pacific).
Late Palaeozoic intrusive and volcanic rocks are widespread north of the Variscan orogen and constitute an early Carboniferous-early Permian igneous province that extends from SW Ireland over Scotland, southern Scandinavia, to the North German Basin and adjacent areas.

The Caribbean Large Igneous Province (CLIP), also known as the "Great Caribbean Flood Basalt Event" or the "Caribbean Sill Event" (Duncan & Hargraves, 1984; Donnelly et al., 1990) represents a period of extensive volcanism and intrusive activity between 95 and 72 Ma (with a peak at ~90Ma).
