When a continental plate come to rest over a hot spot, the material rising from deeper layer creates a broad dome.
当大陆板块漂移到热点上方,来自地球深层的物质便形成了巨大的圆顶状隆起物。
As the dome grows, it develops deep fissures (cracks); in at least a few cases the continent may break entirely along some of these fissures, so that the hot spot initiates the formation of a new ocean.
随着这个圆顶的增长,板块出现深深的裂缝。至少有几次,大陆可能会沿着其中的一些裂缝完全裂开了,因此这个热点就引发了一个新的海洋的形成。
Thus just as earlier theories have explained the mobility of the continents, so hot spots may explain their mutability (inconstancy).
这样,正像早期的理论解释了大陆的移动性一样,热点理论或许能解释大陆板块的不稳定性。
