Pitcairn hotspot

The Pitcairn hotspot is a volcanic hotspot located in the south-central Pacific Ocean. It is responsible for creating the Pitcairn Islands and two large seamounts called Adams and Bounty. Opponents of the hotspots theory instead attribute Pitcairn hotspot to the western end of the Easter Fracture Zone.
