Great Meteor hotspot
The New England hotspot, also referred to as the Great Meteor hotspot, is a long-lived volcanic hotspot in the Atlantic Ocean. The hotspot's most recent eruptive center is the Great Meteor Seamount, and it probably created a short line of mid to late-Tertiary age seamounts on the African Plate but appears to be currently inactive.
The New England hotspot track is used to estimate the movement of the North American Plate away from the African Plate from early Cretaceous period to the present.
The New England hotspot has been overridden by the Mid-Atlantic Ridge.
