Scattered around the globe are more than 100 small regions of isolated volcanic activity known to geologists as hot spots.
地球上散落分布着100多个互不相连的小火山活动区,被地质学家称为热点。
Unlike most of the world's volcanoes, they are not always found at the boundaries of the great drifting plates that make up the earth's surface; on the contrary, many of them lie deep in the interior of a plate.
和世界上大多数火山不同的是,它们并不总是在构成地球表面的巨大漂流板块之间的边界上出现;相反,许多热点处于板块较深的内部。

Most of the hot spots move only slowly, and in some cases the movement of the plates past them has left trails of dead volcanoes.
大多数热点移动非常缓慢,有时,板块滑过这些热点便留下了死火山的痕迹。
The hot spots and their volcanic trails are milestones that mark the passage of the plates.
热点及其火山痕迹是板块移动的标志。

It is not possible to determine whether both continents are moving in opposite directions or whether one continent is stationary and the other is drifting away from it. Hot spots, anchored in the deeper layers of the earth, provide the measuring instruments needed to resolve the question.
人们不能确定两个大陆是在朝相反的方向运动,还是一个大陆停止不动而另一个从它身边漂移开去。位于地球更深层的热点提供了解决该问题的测量仪器。

From an analysis of the hot-spot population it appears that the African plate is stationary and that it has not moved during the past 30 million years.
从热点地区的人口情况分析来看,非洲板块似乎是固定的,在过去3000万年里也没有移动过。

The significance of hot spots is not confined to their role as a frame of reference.
热点的重要性不仅限于它们作为参照体系的作用。
It now appears that they also have an important influence on the geophysical processes that propel the plates across the globe.
现在看来,它们还对推动板块在地球表面漂移这一地球物理过程有重要影响。

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。
