  journal={Doklady Earth Sciences},
The main goal of this investigation is estimating volume of volatile emission, atmospheric and climatic impact of the Kurile Lake caldera-forming eruption, one of the Earth’s largest Holocene explosive eruptions. The volatile content of magma before the eruption was estimated by comparing H2O, S, Cl and F contents in natural quenched glassy melt inclusions trapped by plagioclase phenocrysts. The volatile content of igneous rocks after eruption was estimated by comparing concentrations of… 

Composition and Geochemical Specifics of Magmatic Melts in Kamchatka: Evidence from Melt Inclusions and Quenched Glasses of Rocks

Abstract— The mean concentrations of volatiles, major, and trace elements are estimated in the magmatic melts of Kamchatka based on an our database that includes analyses of melt inclusions and

Tephra without Borders: Far-Reaching Clues into Past Explosive Eruptions

This review is intended to highlight recent exciting advances in the study of distal (>100 km from the source) tephra and cryptotephra deposits and their potential application for volcanology.

Method for Determining Water Content in Natural Rhyolitic Melts by Raman Spectroscopy and Electron Microprobe Analysis

Abstract The paper presents an original method developed by the authors for determining water content in highly polymerized rhyolite and rhyodacite glasses in melt inclusions. The method involves

Anticipating future Volcanic Explosivity Index (VEI) 7 eruptions and their chilling impacts

Worst-case or high-end subduction-related earthquakes and tsunamis of 2004 and 2011 are painfully fresh in our memories. High-end subductionrelated volcanic eruptions have not occurred in recent



Volatile emission during the eruption of Baitoushan Volcano (China/North Korea) ca. 969 AD

3 [magma volume (DRE): 24 ± 5 km3]. The main phase (ca. 95 vol.%) is represented by comenditic tephra deposited dominantly as widespread fallout blankets and proximal ignimbrites. The eruption column

Climatic, environmental and human consequences of the largest known historic eruption: Tambora volcano (Indonesia) 1815

The 1815 eruption of Tambora volcano (Sumbawa island, Indonesia) expelled around 140 gt of magma (equivalent to ≈50 km3 of dense rock), making it the largest known historic eruption. More than 95% by

Global influence of the AD 1600 eruption of Huaynaputina, Peru

It has long been estabished that gas and fine ash from large equatorial explosive eruptions can spread globally, and that the sulphuric acid that is consequently produced in the stratosphere can

Texture and composition of pumices and scoriae from the Campi Flegrei caldera (Italy): Implications on the dynamics of explosive eruptions

The Campi Flegrei (CF) caldera is one of the most dangerous quiescent volcanic systems in the world. Its activity mostly resulted in low‐magnitude explosive eruptions, such as that of the Monte Nuovo

Mid- to Late Holocene climate change: an overview

Dynamics of magma flow in volcanic conduits with variable fragmentation efficiency and nonequilibrium pumice degassing

Numerical models of volcanic conduit dynamics assume that the foamy structure of magma is totally destroyed at fragmentation, neglecting the presence of vesicular fragments in the above gas-particle


The hydration rate of rhyolitic glass has been determined at temperatures ranging from 5° C to 100° C. The relationship between the depth of hydration, x, and time, t is x 2 = kt; k varies from 0.4 μ
