This book is about a class of volcanoes, active and formerly active, that erupt in association with ice in a glacierised setting. They are collectively known as glaciovolcanic centres and their distinctive eruption style is called glaciovolcanism. Glaciovolcanic eruptions are also often referred to as ‘subglacial’. The terms glaciovolcanism and subglacial(More)
Introduction: Domes and more oblong and irregularly shaped mounds have been described from the Arcadia and Utopia Planitiae regions on Mars [1,2,3]. In [1] it was suggested that the domes in Arcadia were volcanic domes and they were compared to terrestrial volcanic domes with silica contents generally higher than have been associated with known volcanic(More)
Understanding interactions between volcanic eruptions and the cryosphere (a.k.a. glaciovolcanism) is important for climate reconstructions as well as for hazard mitigation at ice-clad volcanoes. Here we present unique field observations of interactions between snowpack and advancing basaltic lava flows during the 2012-13 eruption at Tolbachik volcano,(More)
Quantitative measurements of interactions between lava and ice/snow are critical for improving our knowledge of glaciovolcanic hazards and our ability to use glaciovolcanic deposits for paleoclimate reconstructions. However, such measurements are rare because the eruptions tend to be dangerous and not easily accessible. To address these diffi culties, we(More)
Volcanoes are increasingly recognized as agents and recorders of global climate variability, although deciphering the linkages between planetary climate and volcanism is still in its infancy. The growth and emergence of subaqueous volcanoes produce passage zones, which are stratigraphic surfaces marking major transitions in depositional environments. In(More)
