Mmm, yees, but since the earth is compressed, what would come up between the tectonic plates if they turn from eachother in an area where a third plate aren't able to squeeze itself into place. In my delirius dreams, I think that would make room for a softspot. Let's say a new supervulcano? -if there isn't one there already? Could Sumatra be onsite of this softspot? Has it been a softspot? Like 78.000 years ago (Toba)?
I haven't really clarified where actually the three plates meet, anyone have a map of it to post here? Tnx.


-Sorry WyrdeOne, found the map now!

From what WyrdeOnes map,Tectonic plates, could tell me, the actual softspot should appear further south than where Toba's at, because of the plates movement the last 78.000 years. But on the other hand, if the chimney is already there, it would be logical to think that it is easier for magma to come through that chimney. Right?

Ulvetann: All of what you have said doesn't make any geological sense, softspots, chimmneys???

I don't think you've got the right Idea unfortunatly
