Hotspot (geology)
O termo Hotspot (geology) é utilizado na Wikipedia de língua inglesa, onde se pode ler:

The places known as hotspots or hot spots in geology are volcanic regions thought to be fed by underlying mantle that is anomalously hot compared with the mantle elsewhere. They may be unanimously hot, and provide a great deal of molten magma. They may be on, near to, or far from tectonic plate boundaries. There are two hypotheses to explain them. One suggests that they are due to hot mantle plumes that rise as thermal diapirs from the core-mantle boundary. The other hypothesis postulates that it is not high temperature that causes the volcanism, but lithospheric extension that permits the passive rising of melt from shallow depths. This hypothesis considers the term "hotspot" to be a misnomer, asserting that the mantle source beneath them is, in fact, not anomalously hot at all. Well known examples include Hawaii and Yellowstone.

Ponto quente
O termo Hotspot (geology) na Wikipedia de língua inglesa corresponde ao termo Ponto quente na Wikipedia de língua alemã, onde se pode ler:

Pontos quentes (do inglês hotspot), pontos de anomalia termal no interior da Terra, ligados a sistemas de convecção do manto e responsáveis pelo vulcanismo que ocorre no interior de placas tectónicas. Considera-se que a irregularidade térmica é devido à elevação de convecção pós-térmica do manto superior, denominado pluma fria. Em regiões oceânicas, encontram-se vulcanismos basálticos de composição álcali-olivina basáltica e toleítica. Em regiões continentais, observam-se vulcanismos de basalto toleítico, álcali-olivina basáltivo, fonolítico e carbonatítico. Observa-se um rastro que assinala o movimento da placa tectónica sobre o ponto quente.
A teoria dos pontos quentes foi postulada pelo geofísico canadiano J. Tuzo Wilson em 1963 para explicar a existência de celas de vulcões formando linhas coincidentes com a direção geral de movimento das placas sobre as quais assentam, e teve como modelo o arquipélago do Havaí. Nestas áreas, os vulcões parecem indiciar a passagem da crosta terrestre sobre uma pluma de material magmático, essencialmente fixa no manto terrestre, que ao ascender à superfície origina sucessivos edifícios vulcânicos.
