I’m working on a review paper on evolution of volcanic ocean islands coming out of the Chapman Conference on the Galapagos I participated in last summer. Rather handily, the conference organizers have put together a nice website with all of the talks, posters, and field trip guides. If you are interested in any of the earth science aspects of volcanic ocean islands, ridge-plume interactions, etc., check out the website. Later this year there will also be an AGU monograph arising from the Conference. I’ll post details when it is published.
