Subsidence of ash-flow calderas : relation to caldera size and magma-chamber geometry

  title={Subsidence of ash-flow calderas : relation to caldera size and magma-chamber geometry},
Peter W. Lipman U.S. Geological Survey, 345 Middlefield Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA e-mail: Abstract Diverse subsidence geometries and collapse processes for ash-flow calderas are inferred to reflect varying sizes, roof geometries, and depths of the source magma chambers, in combination with prior volcanic and regional tectonic influences. Based largely on a review of features at eroded pre-Quaternary calderas, a continuum of geometries and subsidence styles is… CONTINUE READING
