Abstract The Garibaldi Volcanic Belt (GVB) in southwestern British Columbia is dominated by intermediate composition volcanoes in a setting that has been intermittently subjected to widespread glaciation. The glaciovolcanic features produced are distinctive, and include flow-dominated tuyas, subglacial domes, and ice-marginal flows. Flow-dominated tuyas, which are intermediate in composition, are unlike conventional basaltic tuyas; they consist of stacks of flat-lying lava flows, and lack…

Basanite glaciovolcanism at Llangorse mountain, northern British Columbia, Canada
The Llangorse volcanic field is located in northwest British Columbia, Canada, and comprises erosional remnants of Miocene to Holocene volcanic edifices, lava flows or dykes. The focus of this study
Subglacial and ice-contact volcanism at the Öræfajökull stratovolcano, Iceland
Eruptions of Öræfajökull have produced mafic and silicic magmas, and have taken place in both glacial and interglacial periods. The geology of the volcano records the differing response of magmas of
Lillooet Glacier basalts, southwestern British Columbia, Canada: products of Quaternary glaciovolcanism
The retreat of Lillooet Glacier (LG) has exposed a succession of pillow basalt and subordinate amounts of breccia and hyaloclastite. The lithofacies and physiographic setting suggest that the
Canadian Cascade volcanism: Subglacial to explosive eruptions along the Sea to Sky Corridor, British Columbia
Here we describe a two-day fi eld trip to examine Quaternary volcanism in the Canadian Cascade arc, named the Garibaldi volcanic belt. Day 1 of the trip proceeds along the Whistler corridor from
Volcanology and petrology of Mathews Tuya, northern British Columbia, Canada: glaciovolcanic constraints on interpretations of the 0.730 Ma Cordilleran paleoclimate
Petrological, volcanological and geochronological data collected at Mathews Tuya together provide constraints on paleoclimate conditions during formation of the edifice. The basaltic tuya was
Glaciovolcanism in the Garibaldi volcanic belt
This thesis investigates glaciovolcanism in the Garibaldi volcanic belt (GVB) of southwestern British Columbia (SWBC), Canada. Field observations and modelling are used to investigate: i) the
Polymagmatic Glaciovolcanism: Cracked Mountain Tuya, Canadian Cascades
Monogenetic volcanoes are characterized as having no temporal break in eruptive activity and are often assumed to have a simple (singular) magmatic plumbing system. However, recent studies on


Glacial influences on morphology and eruptive products of Hoodoo Mountain volcano, Canada
Abstract Hoodoo Mountain volcano (HMV), a Quaternary composite volcano in northwestern British Columbia, is a well-exposed example of peralkaline, phonolitic icecontact and subglacial volcanism. Its
Late Miocene valley-confined subglacial volcanism in northern Alexander Island, Antarctic Peninsula
Isolated, Late Miocene volcanogenic sequences in northern Alexander Island, Antarctic Peninsula, form an unusual, cogenetic association of volcaniclastic, sandy-gravelly lithofacies (including
Products of an effusive subglacial rhyolite eruption: Bláhnúkur, Torfajökull, Iceland
We present field observations from Bláhnúkur, a small volume (<0.1 km3) subglacial rhyolite edifice at the Torfajökull central volcano, south-central Iceland. Bláhnúkur was probably emplaced during
Intraglacial volcanism in the Wells Gray–Clearwater volcanic field, east-central British Columbia, Canada
Small-volume, subaerial, subaqueous and subglacial basaltic eruptions occurred in the Wells Gray–Clearwater area during Quaternary time. Part of this time, significant thicknesses of glacial ice were
Products and processes in Pliocene–Recent, subaqueous to emergent volcanism in the Antarctic Peninsula: examples of englacial Surtseyan volcano construction
Abstract Pliocene–Recent volcanic outcrops at Seal Nunataks and Beethoven Peninsula (Antarctic Peninsula) are remnants of several monogenetic volcanoes formed by eruption of vesiculating basaltic
Late Cenozoic volcanic rocks of the Clearwater – Wells Gray area, British Columbia
The Clearwater – Wells Gray area of east-central British Columbia includes a succession of late Cenozoic, alkali olivine basalt flows that lie east of the extensive Chilcotin lavas and define the
Lava and Ice Interaction at Stratovolcanoes: Use of Characteristic Features to Determine Past Glacial Extents and Future Volcanic Hazards
Structures resulting from lava and ice interaction are common at glaciated stratovolcanoes. During summit eruptions at stratovolcanoes, meltwater is produced and travels freely down steep slopes and
Eruptive history and K-Ar geochronology of the late Cenozoic Garibaldi volcanic belt, southwestern British Columbia
The Cenozoic Garibaldi belt comprises 6 volcanic fields spaced at irregular intervals along an axis extending 240 km north-northwest from the head of Howe Sound to the Bridge River area; 2 additional
