[1] Ground surface displacement (GSD) in large calderas is often interpreted as resulting from magma intrusion at depth. Recent advances in geodetic measurements of GSD, notably interferometric synthetic aperture radar, reveal complex and multifaceted deformation patterns that often require complex source models to explain the observed GSD. Although hydrothermal fluids have been discussed as a possible deformation agent, very few quantitative studies addressing the effects of multiphase flow on…

Numerical models for ground deformation and gravity changes during volcanic unrest: simulating the hydrothermal system dynamics of a restless caldera

Abstract. Ground deformation and gravity changes in restless calderas during periods of unrest can signal an impending eruption and thus must be correctly interpreted for hazard evaluation. It is

Effects of hydrothermal unrest on stress and deformation: insights from numerical modeling and application to Vulcano Island (Italy)

A numerical approach is proposed to evaluate stress and deformation fields induced by hydrothermal fluid circulation and its influence on volcano-flank stability. The numerical computations have been

Numerical simulation of magmatic hydrothermal systems

The dynamic behavior of magmatic hydrothermal systems entails coupled and nonlinear multiphase flow, heat and solute transport, and deformation in highly heterogeneous media. Thus, quantitative

Numerical models for ground deformation and gravity changes during volcanic unrest : simulating the hydrothermal system dynamics of an active a restless caldera

Ground deformation and gravity changes in active restless calderas during periods of unrest can signal an impending eruption and thus must be correctly interpreted for hazard evaluation. It is

A Perturbative Approach for Modeling Short‐Term Fluid‐Driven Ground Deformation Episodes on Volcanoes: A Case Study in the Campi Flegrei Caldera (Italy)

Ground deformation in volcanic areas is linked to various, often interconnected processes such as magma intrusion, pressurized fluid migration, and thermal expansion effects. The presence of active

Poroelastic responses of confined aquifers to subsurface strain and their use for volcano monitoring

Abstract. Well water level changes associated with magmatic unrest can be interpreted as a result of pore pressure changes in the aquifer due to crustal deformation, and so could provide constraints

Modeling of unrest signals in heterogeneous hydrothermal systems

[1] Monitoring of quiescent volcanoes, such as Campi Flegrei (Italy), involves the measurement of geochemical and geophysical parameters that are expected to change as eruptive conditions approach.

Multiphysics Modeling of Volcanic Unrest at Mt. Ruapehu (New Zealand)

Pre‐eruptive signals at the crater lake‐bearing Mt. Ruapehu (New Zealand) are either absent or hard to identify. Here, we report on geophysical anomalies arising from hydrothermal unrest (HTU) and
