Understanding magma plumbing is essential for predicting the behaviour of explosive volcanoes. We investigate magma plumbing at the highly active Anak Krakatau volcano (Indonesia), situated on the rim of the 1883 Krakatau caldera by employing a suite of thermobarometric models. These include clinopyroxene-melt thermobarometry, plagioclase-melt thermobarometry, clinopyroxene composition barometry and olivine-melt thermometry. Petrological studies have previously identified shallow magma storage… 
Persistent multitiered magma plumbing beneath Katla volcano, Iceland
Recent seismic unrest and a persistent Holocene eruption record at Katla volcano, Iceland indicate that a near‐future eruption is possible. Previous petrological investigations suggest that Katla is
Crustal Differentiation Processes at Krakatau Volcano, Indonesia
Anak Krakatau is a basaltic andesite cone that has grown following the famous caldera-forming 1883 eruption of Krakatau. It breached sea level in 1927 and since the 1950s has been growing at an
The magma plumbing system of the Emeishan large igneous province and its role in basaltic magma differentiation in a continental setting
Abstract Magmatic activity of the Emeishan large igneous province (ELIP) of SW China is one of the most significant geological events of the late Paleozoic. The large volume flood basalts plus rare
Petrological record from young Ruapehu eruptions in the 4.5 ka Kiwikiwi Formation, Whangaehu Gorge, New Zealand
Abstract A petrological study of the Kiwikiwi Formation from Mount Ruapehu is presented. We apply mineral thermobarometry to investigate the volcano's plumbing system and the petrogenesis of the
Evolution of Magma Plumbing System in Miyakejima Volcano: Constraints From Melting Experiments
The evolution of the magma plumbing system of Miyakejima volcano, an island arc basaltic volcano located on the volcanic front of the Izu arc, Japan, was investigated by combining (i) melting
Combining Petrology and Seismology to Unravel the Plumbing System of a Typical Arc Volcano: An Example From Marapi, West Sumatra, Indonesia
Marapi in Sumatra is characterized by frequent short‐lived explosions and small eruptions (Volcanic Explosivity Index 1–2) and in the past 250 years, the volcano has erupted >60 times. Recent
Sunda arc mantle source δ18O value revealed by intracrystal isotope analysis
The oxygen isotope composition of the mantle underlying the East Sunda Arc is therefore largely unaffected by subduction-driven metasomatism and may thus represent a sediment-poor arc end-member.


Upper mantle magma storage and transport under a Canarian shield-volcano, Teno, Tenerife (Spain)
We use clinopyroxene-liquid thermobarometry, aided by petrography and mineral major element chemistry, to reconstruct the magma plumbing system of the late Miocene, largely mafic Teno shield-volcano
Mineral chemistry of submarine lavas from Hilo Ridge, Hawaii: implications for magmatic processes within Hawaiian rift zones
Abstract The crustal history of volcanic rocks can be inferred from the mineralogy and compositions of their phenocrysts which record episodes of magma mixing as well as the pressures and
Complex magma storage and ascent at embryonic submarine volcanoes from the Madeira Archipelago
The formation of magma chambers is a significant phase in the evolution of large oceanic intraplate volcanoes and has strong control on melt composition. There is, however, little information about
A clinopyroxene–basalt geothermobarometry perspective of Columbia Plateau (NW‐USA) Miocene magmatism
The origin of NW‐USA Columbia River Basalt Group Miocene magmatism and its relation to tectonism has been widely debated and is still open to study. We investigated the pre‐eruptive evolution of the
Geochemical Stratigraphy of Submarine Lavas (3^5 Ma) from the Flamengos Valley, Santiago, Southern Cape Verde Islands
New high-precision Pb-Sr-Nd isotope, major and trace element and mineral chemistry data are presented for the submarine stage of ocean island volcanism on Santiago, one of the southern islands of the
Cross section of a magma conduit system at the margin of the Colorado Plateau
We present crystallization depth vs. temperature estimates for clinopyroxene phenocrysts from the Springerville volcanic field, Arizona. These calculations reveal several intriguing patterns that
Melt extraction pathways and stagnation depths beneath the Madeira and Desertas rift zones (NE Atlantic) inferred from barometric studies
The Madeira and Desertas Islands (eastern North Atlantic) show well-developed rift zones which intersect near the eastern tip of Madeira (São Lourenço peninsula). We applied fluid inclusion barometry
