Remobilization of Andesite Magma by Intrusion of Mafic Magma at the Soufriere Hills Volcano, Montserrat, West Indies
The 1995–1999 eruption of the Soufriere Hills volcano, MontINTRODUCTION serrat, has produced a crystal-rich andesite containing quenchThe Soufriere Hills volcano, Montserrat, located in the texturedExpand
Experimental phase equilibria constraints on pre‐eruptive storage conditions of the Soufriere Hills magma
New experimental results are used to constrain the P. T, X(H 2 O) conditions of the Soufriere Hills magma prior to ascent and eruption. The experiments were performed on a powdered andesite eruptedExpand
Degassing during magma ascent in the Mule Creek vent (USA)
Abstract The structures and textures of the rhyolite in the Mule Creek vent (New Mexico, USA) indicate mechanisms by which volatiles escape from silicic magma during eruption. The vent outcrop is aExpand
The issue of trust and its influence on risk communication during a volcanic crisis
This paper investigates trust in the scientists, government authorities and wider risk management team during the ongoing volcanic crisis in Montserrat, WI. Identifying the most trusted communicatorExpand
Volcanic hazard communication using maps: an evaluation of their effectiveness
Hazard maps are considered essential tools in the communication of volcanic risk between scientists, the local authorities and the public. This study investigates the efficacy of such maps for theExpand
A Hornblende Basalt from Western Mexico: Water-saturated Phase Relations Constrain a Pressure---Temperature Window of Eruptibility
Trachybasalt scoria from a cinder cone near the Mexican volcanic front contain phenocrysts of olivine with chromite inclusions, apatite, augite and hornblende, with microphenocrysts of plagioclase.Expand
Whose reality counts? Factors affecting the perception of volcanic risk
Understanding how people perceive risk has become increasingly important for improving risk communication and reducing risk associated conflicts. This paper builds upon findings, methodologies andExpand
Rainfall-induced lahars in the Belham Valley, Montserrat, West Indies
Rain falling on loose volcanic debris over the Soufrière Hills Volcano, Montserrat generates hazardous floods in the Belham Valley. These rainfall-induced lahars vary greatly in discharge andExpand
The role of magma mixing in triggering the current eruption at the Soufriere Hills Volcano, Montserrat
The andesite lava currently erupting at the Soufriere Hills volcano, Montserrat, contains ubiquitous mafic inclusions which show evidence of having been molten when incorporated into the andesite.Expand
