- Flood basalts are one type of Large Igneous Province that characterize the Earth's surface and have been formed at various times in the geological past. They represent the largest eruptions of lava on Earth, with known volumes of individual lava flows exceeding 2000 cubic kilometres extending over areas of more than a million square kilometres.
