..., overlying rocks can be broken apart and effectively engulfed within them. Extensive dyke swarms are exposed in the more deeply eroded silicic LIPs (e.g. Whitsunday, Kennedy–Connors–Auburn; Ewart et al. 1992 ; Stephenson 1990 ; Bryan 2007 ). Diffuse swarms (> 100 km wide) of mostly steeply dipping...
