Silicic volcanoes are increasingly understood to be underlain by crystal-rich and vertically extensive magma reservoirs within which disequilibrium is widespread. Observations from ignimbrite


Causes of unrest at silicic calderas in the East African Rift: New constraints from InSAR and soil‐gas chemistry at Aluto volcano, Ethiopia
Restless silicic calderas present major geological hazards, and yet many also host significant untapped geothermal resources. In East Africa, this poses a major challenge, although the calderas are
Phase Equilibrium Constraints on Pre-eruptive Conditions of Recent Felsic Explosive Volcanism at Pantelleria Island, Italy
We present experimental phase equilibria carried out on a pantelleritic bulk-rock composition with a peralkalinity index [PI = molar (Na2O + K2O)/Al2O3] = 1*4, which is representative of the most
Magma storage conditions beneath Dabbahu Volcano (Ethiopia) constrained by petrology, seismicity and satellite geodesy
A variety of methods exist to constrain sub-volcanic storage conditions of magmas. Petrological, seismological and satellite geodetic methods are integrated to determine storage conditions of
Peralkaline magma evolution and the tephra record in the Ethiopian Rift
The 3.119 ± 0.010 Ma Chefe Donsa phreatomagmatic deposits on the shoulder of the Ethiopian Rift mark the northern termination of the Silti-Debre Zeyit Fault Zone, a linear zone of focused extension
Temporal evolution of a post-caldera, mildly peralkaline magmatic system: Furnas volcano, São Miguel, Azores
Furnas is one of three active central volcanoes on São Miguel Island, Azores, and is considered to be one of the most hazardous in the archipelago. In this study, the pre-eruptive magma plumbing
Quaternary faulting and volcanism in the Main Ethiopian Rift
Abstract The Main Ethiopian Rift (MER) is associated with bimodal Quaternary magmatism. Field, remote sensing, and geochronology data are used to examine the relationships between axial acidic
Understanding magma evolution at Campi Flegrei (Campania, Italy) volcanic complex using melt inclusions and phase equilibria
The magmatic evolution of two eruptive episodes at Campi Flegrei (Italy) has been investigated using phase equilibria modeling (MELTS) and data from melt inclusions (MIs) in phenocrysts from the
The protracted development of focused magmatic intrusion during continental rifting
The transition from mechanical thinning toward focused magmatic intrusion during continental rifting is poorly constrained; the tectonically active Main Ethiopian Rift (MER) provides an ideal study
A Metamodel for Crustal Magmatism: Phase Equilibria of Giant Ignimbrites
Diverse explanations exist for the large-volume catastrophic eruptions that formed the Bishop Tuff of Long Valley in eastern California, the Bandelier Tuff in New Mexico, and the tuffs of
Quaternary volcano‐tectonic activity in the Soddo region, western margin of the Southern Main Ethiopian Rift
[1] We present an analysis of the distribution, timing, and characteristics of the volcano-tectonic activity on the western margin of the Southern Main Ethiopian Rift in the Soddo area (latitudes
