These were the subcommissions established for consideration of the submissions made by the Russian Federation in respect of the Arctic Ocean; Brazil in respect of the Brazilian Southern Region (partial revised submission); Norway in respect of Bouvetoya and Dronning Maud Land; South Africa in respect of the mainland of the territory of the Republic of South Africa; the Federated States of Micronesia, Papua New Guinea and Solomon Islands, jointly, concerning the Ontong Java Plateau; France and South Africa, jointly, in the area of the Crozet Archipelago and the Prince Edward Islands; Kenya; Mauritius in the region of Rodrigues Island; Nigeria; and Seychelles.
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).
Among the topics discussed are geochemical and geochronological constraints on the evolution of the Azores Plateau, the Shatsky Rise ocean plateau structure from two-dimensional multi-channel seismic reflection profiles and implications for oceanic plateau formation, lithium isotope evidence for magmatic assimilation of hydrothermally influenced crust beneath oceanic large igneous provinces, topographic expression of the Danger Islands Troughs and implications for tectonic evolution of the Manihiki Plateau in the western equatorial Pacific Ocean, and environmental consequences of Ontong Java Plateau and Kerguelen Plateau volcanism.
