It is one of several commissions under the umbrella of the International Association of Volcanology and Chemistry of the Earth’s Interior (IAVCEI; http://www.iavcei.org/). The interests of LIPs Commission members range widely. The Commission links many geoscience disciplines and applies the broadest range of expertise to specific problems.

: Earth history is punctuated by short duration events (or dramatic pulses in longer duration events) during which large volumes of mainly mafic magmas were generated and emplaced by processes unrelated to “normal” sea-floor spreading and subduction. These Large Igneous Provinces (LIPs) are best preserved in the Mesozoic and Cenozoic where they occur as continental flood basalts, volcanic rifted margins, oceanic plateaus, and ocean basin flood basalts. Silicic rocks may also be associated.

: This database was originally intended to catalogue extensive mafic igneous events and to evaluate the possible relationship of these events to mantle plumes. We offer it here as a preliminary listing of LIPs, regardless of origin. Apart from a few minor corrections, the database is from Table 1 in R.E. Ernst and K.L. Buchan (2001), "Large mafic magmatic events through time and links to mantle plume-heads" (chapter 19 in "Mantle Plumes: Their Identification Through Time", Geological Society of America Special Paper 352, edited by R.E. Ernst and K.L. Buchan).

: The LIPs Commission was formed in 1993, as the scale and importance of LIPs in Earth history was appreciated, and the need for an international multidisciplinary effort recognized. Led by Drs. Mike Coffin and John Mahoney between 1993 and1998, the study of LIPs expanded, particularly that of oceanic plateaus and ocean basin flood basalts. An important publication was: Mahoney & Coffin (eds.) Large Igneous Provinces: Continental, Oceanic and Planetary Flood Volcanism. AGU Geophys. Mon. 100, 1997.

: Martin Menzies Royal Holloway, University of London September 15th 2004 When continental break-up and magmatic activity are associated both in time and space, a volcanic rifted margin is produced. >75% of the Atlantic Ocean margins are volcanic rifted margins associated with large igneous provinces/flood basalts (e.g. Greenland-UK, Parana-Etendeka). Other examples exist in the Red Sea-Gulf of Aden, west Australia, East Africa and the margins of the Indian sub-continent. Volcanic rifted margins comprise three main components.
