Mantle convection is the main mode how heat is transported from the deep Earth interior to near its surface, and mantle plumes are part of this convection. Dynamic topography is one surface expression of these convective processes. Here we discuss these features, focusing on the North Atlantic and West Antarctica, because topography and (potential) plumes in these regions are important for determining ocean currents and ice sheet stability. Hence they also play an important role in understanding causes and effects of changing climates.
