Dunedin (/ d ʌ ˈ n iː d ɪ n / duh-NEE-din; Māori: Ōtepoti) is the second-largest city in the South Island of New Zealand (after Christchurch), and the principal city of the Otago region. Its name comes from Dùn Èideann, the Scottish Gaelic name for Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland.. The urban area of Dunedin lies on the central-eastern coast of Otago, surrounding the head of Otago.

In many publications, including the earlier editions of this book, the Palaeogene igneous rocks of the British Isles are referred to as the British Tertiary Volcanic (or Igneous) Province, but as the term ‘Tertiary’ is no longer used in chronostratigraphy we have chosen to replace it in the title of this book.

The North Atlantic Igneous Province (NAIP) is a large igneous province in the North Atlantic, centered on the Paleogene, the province formed the Thulean Plateau, a large basaltic lava plain, which extended over at least million km 2 ( thousand sq mi) in area and million km 3 ( million cu mi) in volume.

The plateau was broken up during the opening of the North Atlantic. adshelp[at] The ADS is operated by the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory under NASA Cooperative Agreement NNX16AC86A.

Thus, for example, the variation in Ordovician volcanic rocks of Wales and the Lake District imply a convergent plate boundary with subduction occurring to the north of these areas, southwards under the Lake District and Wales.

In contrast, the volcanic rocks of the Tertiary volcanic province of Scotland are associated with a divergent plate.

Barbados is set off from the chain of the Lesser Antilles by about miles. Once in the early Tertiary it was a part of the mainland, and the oldest beds, exposed in the Scotland district, are made up of sandstones, conglomerates,and shales intermingled in places with thin beds of volcanic origin.

The British Tertiary Volcanic Province (BTVP) is part of a larger N Atlantic Tertiary Province that includes NW Britain, E Greenland, the Faroes and Iceland (see Flood basalt).The igneous activity in this major province is related to the plate separation and subsequent sea-floor spreading between Greenland and NW Europe.

Between 50 and 60 million years ago, the Atlantic Ocean began to form, separating Scotland and North America. The event caused large scale volcanic activity in the UK. Image: From 'Location of the major intrusive centres of the British Tertiary Igneous Province', Journal of.
