In geology, a hotspot is a location on the Earth's surface that has experienced active volcanism for a long period of time. J. Tuzo Wilson came up with the idea in 1963 that volcanic chains like the Hawaiian Islands result from the slow movement of a tectonic plate across a "fixed" hot spot deep beneath the surface of the planet. Hotspots are thought to be caused by a narrow stream of hot mantle convecting up from the mantle-core boundary called a mantle plume http://pubs.usgs.gov/publications/text/hotspots.html, although some geologists prefer upper-mantle convection as a causehttp://www.geolsoc.org.uk/template.cfm?name=NakedEmperorhttp://www.geotimes.org/nov00/hotspot.htmlhttp://www.dur.ac.uk/g.r.foulger/Offprints/Yellowstone.pdf.
