ABSTRACT Auckland Volcanic Field (AVF) is a basaltic intraplate volcanic field in North Island, New Zealand, upon which >1.6 million people live. Seismic velocity tomography and geochemistry suggest a primary mantle source region at a depth of 70–90 km. Geochemical analysis indicates a range of magma compositions, and that melts ascend with little crustal interaction. Eruptions generally began with a phreatomagmatic phase forming maar and tuff rings with tephra fall, base surges, and ballistic… Expand
Volcanoes buried in Te Riu-a-Māui/Zealandia sedimentary basins
ABSTRACT Many volcanoes are buried within Te Riu-a-Māui/Zealandia sedimentary basins. Based on a large collection of seismic reflection and drillhole data, this paper outlines the morphology,Expand
The magma source of small-scale intraplate monogenetic volcanic systems in northern New Zealand
Abstract The Auckland intraplate volcanic province consists of four small fields of basaltic monogenetic volcanoes. Each of these was active for a period of ~1 Myr and during the last 3 Myr the locusExpand
Structural controls on the location, geometry and longevity of an intraplate volcanic system: the Tuatara Volcanic Field, Great South Basin, New Zealand
Intraplate volcanism is widely distributed across the continents, but the controls on the 3D geometry and longevity of individual volcanic systems remain poorly understood. Geophysical data provideExpand
Geochemical patterns of late Cenozoic intraplate basaltic volcanism in northern New Zealand and their relationship to the behaviour of the mantle
ABSTRACT A major period of subduction-related volcanism in northern New Zealand began about 20 million years ago; its locus of activity migrated southward during the late Cenozoic in response toExpand
Las Cabras volcano, Michoacán-Guanajuato Volcanic Field, México: Topographic, climatic, and shallow magmatic controls on scoria cone eruptions
Scoria cones are abundant in most volcanic fields on Earth, such as the Michoacán-Guanajuato Volcanic Field, in the central-western sector of the Trans-Mexican Volcanic Belt. However, there are fewExpand
An Overview of the Mafic and Felsic Monogenetic Neogene to Quaternary Volcanism in the Central Andes, Northern Chile (18-28°Lat.S)
Monogenetic volcanism produces small eruptive volumes with short eruption history, different chemical compositions, and relatively simple conduit. The Central Volcanic Zone of the Andes isExpand
Inception of the modern North Island (New Zealand) volcanic setting: spatio-temporal patterns of volcanism between 3.0 and 0.9 Ma
ABSTRACT The modern active volcanic setting of the North Island, New Zealand, includes arc volcanism at the young Taupo Volcanic Zone (< 350 ka) and intraplate basaltic volcanism at the AucklandExpand
The role of hydrovolcanism in the formation of the Cenozoic monogenetic volcanic fields of Zealandia
ABSTRACT Cenozoic geological evolution of New Zealand centres around the formation of Zealandia, a new continent that became detached from the eastern margin of Gondwana around 105 Ma. SpreadingExpand
Magmatism in Antarctica and its relation to Zealandia
ABSTRACT Antarctica and Zealandia were once-adjacent blocks of Gondwana with a shared magmatic history during the Mesozoic and earlier. This is preserved in (a) shared Palaeozoic and MesozoicExpand
Dilemma of Geoconservation of Monogenetic Volcanic Sites under Fast Urbanization and Infrastructure Developments with Special Relevance to the Auckland Volcanic Field, New Zealand
Geoheritage is an important aspect in developing workable strategies for natural hazard resilience. This is reflected in the UNESCO IGCP Project (# 692. Geoheritage for Geohazard Resilience) thatExpand


Tectonically controlled, time-predictable basaltic volcanism from a lithospheric mantle source (central Basin and Range Province, USA)
Understanding the evolution of basaltic volcanic fields is critical to our concepts of basaltic magmatism and to volcanic risk assessment. We summarize physical volcanological, geochemical, andExpand
Construction of the North Head (Maungauika) tuff cone: a product of Surtseyan volcanism, rare in the Auckland Volcanic Field, New Zealand
The Auckland Volcanic Field (AVF) comprises at least 52 monogenetic eruption centres dispersed over ∼360 km2. Eruptions have occurred sporadically since 250 ka, predominantly when glacio-eustatic seaExpand
Cenozoic intraplate volcanism on New Zealand: Upwelling induced by lithospheric removal
Diffuse intraplate volcanism spanning the Cenozoic on the North, South, Chatham, Auckland, Campbell and Antipodes Islands of New Zealand has produced quartz tholeiitic to basanitic/nepheliniticExpand
Te Pouhawaiki Volcano and pre‐volcanic topography in central Auckland: Volcanological and hydrogeological implications
Abstract Te Pouhawaiki Volcano in the Auckland Volcanic Field was identified on the basis of a small scoria cone, but whether this cone marked the location of a significant eruption centre has beenExpand
Sequential eruption of alkaline and sub-alkaline magmas from a small monogenetic volcano in the Auckland Volcanic Field, New Zealand
Abstract Rangitoto Volcano is the youngest and largest eruptive centre in the monogenetic intraplate Auckland Volcanic Field (AVF). The stratigraphy of Rangitoto pyroclastic deposits that have beenExpand
Os isotopic constraints on crustal contamination in Auckland Volcanic Field basalts, New Zealand
The Auckland Volcanic Field (AVF) represents the youngest and northernmost of three subjacent Quaternary intraplate basaltic volcanic fields in the North Island, New Zealand. Previous studies on AVFExpand
Numerical simulation of basaltic lava flows in the Auckland Volcanic Field, New Zealand—implication for volcanic hazard assessment
Monogenetic volcanic fields, such as the Auckland Volcanic Field (AVF), New Zealand, are common on the Earth’s surface and are typically dominated by basaltic lava flows up to 10 s of km long. InExpand
Amplified hazard of small-volume monogenetic eruptions due to environmental controls, Orakei Basin, Auckland Volcanic Field, New Zealand
