 Deccan Traps - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Deccan Traps is a large igneous province located in west-central India and is one of the largest volcanic features on Earth.
It is postulated that the Deccan Traps eruption is associated with a deep mantle plume or hotspot.
The plume or hotspot, known as the Réunion hotspot, is suspected of causing both the Deccan Traps eruption and opening the rift that once separated the Seychelles plateau from India.

 DECCAN
Although the Deccan was in commercial contact with Persia and Arabia from ancient times, it first became a part of the Islamic world in 695/1296, when the Delhi sultan ¿Ala@÷-al-D^n K¨alj^ (695-715/1296-1316) invaded the Hindu kingdom of the Yadavas, with its capital at Deogiri (now Daulatabad), and made it a vassal state.
With the transfer of the Muslim population to Deogiri in 729/1329 the Persian culture that flourished in the Delhi sultanate was transplanted to the Deccan.
Historiography in the Deccan was modeled on the epics and chronicles of the Ghaznavids and Ghurids, which had formed the basis for the court culture of the Delhi sultanate (q.v.).

 Deccan Traps
The Deccan CFB was associated with the breakup of the Seychelles microcontinent from India (e.g., Mahoney, 1988).
The interplay of several intersecting continental rift zones in India is apparently responsible for the roughly circular outcrop of the Deccan.
Deccan volcanism was associated with the separation of the Seychelles microcontinent from India (Figure 2, inset), and this breakup itself is often ascribed to the Réunion plume head impact.

 Deccan Traps
However, his suggestion that the DVP and Laccadive-Chagos ridge formed as a consequence of southward crack propagation along the Vishnu fracture zone is not consistent with data concerning the geomagmatic and tectonic history of the Indian peninsular plate.
Deccan volcanism along the West Coast rift produced the Maldive ridge at around 55 Ma and the Chagos ridge at around 50 Ma.
Clearly, the Maldive and Chagos ridges formed by interaction of the West Coast rift magma with Carlsberg ridge mantle magma because the Laccadive ridge, at 61 Ma, is characterised by melt with the same chemistry as melt from the magma chamber beneath the western continental crust of India.

The Deccan Traps, India is composed of lava flows with enormous volumes and the duration of volcanism has been of great interest relating to the mechanism of their formation.
Further, the age of the Deccan Traps has called the attention from the point of view that the age of the Deccan Traps volcanism might have been almost simultaneous with that of the Cretaceous-Tertiary Boundary(KTB) which has been connected with the major extinction event.
Ar dating for the biotite samples from the alkali rocks in the Deccan Traps yield similar and/or younger ages relative to those of the main tholeiitic volcanics.

 Volcano Greenhouse Dinosaur Extinction Theory
So vast was the Deccan Traps volcanism that it would have flooded earth's surficial systems with carbon dioxide faster than they could have absorbed it, creating fluctuations that would have grown into structure-breaking waves that would have invaded and destabilized them, forcing life to change, or become extinct.
Rapid eruption of the vast Deccan Traps lava fields would have flooded earth's surface with CO2, overwhelming surficial systems and sinks, triggering rapid K-T transition greenhouse warming, chemical changes in the oceans (McLean, 1985a, b, c; 1988, 1995), and the K-T mass extinctions.
Deccan Traps volcanic CO2 accumulation in marine waters also accounts for the trans-K-T extinction of both swimmers and organisms living on, or attached to, the ocean floor.

The Deccan's average elevation is about 2,000 feet (600 m), sloping generally eastward; its principal rivers, the Godavari, Krishna, and Cauvery, flow from the Western Ghats eastward to the Bay of Bengal.
From the 6th to the 13th century, the Calukya, Rastrakuta, Later Calukya, Hoysala, and Yadava families successively established regional kingdoms in the Deccan, but they were continually in conflict with neighbouring states and recalcitrant feudatories.
For most of their reigns, however, the five successor states formed shifting patterns of alliances in an effort to keep any one state from dominating the area and, from 1656, to fend off incursions by the Mughal empire to the north.

The Deccan plateau is a topographically variegated region located south of the Gangetic plains-the portion lying between the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal-and includes a substantial area to the north of the Vindhya Range, which has popularly been regarded as the divide between northern India and the Deccan.
Although sometimes used to mean all of India south of the Narmada River, the word Deccan relates more specifically to that area of rich volcanic soils and lava-covered plateaus in the northern part of the peninsula between the Narmada and Krishna rivers.
The eastern Deccan plateau, called Telangana, is made of vast sheets of massive granite rock, which effectively traps rainwater.
