Sierra Negra volcano began erupting on 22 October 2005, after a repose of 26 years. A plume of ash and steam more than 13 km high accompanied the initial phase of the eruption and was quickly followed by a ~2-km-long curtain of lava fountains. The eruptive fissure opened inside the north rim of the caldera, on the opposite side of the caldera from an active fault system that experienced an mb 4.6 earthquake and ~84 cm of uplift on 16 April 2005. The main products of the eruption were an `a`a… 
Chronology and phenomenology of the 1982 and 2015 Wolf volcano eruptions, Galápagos Archipelago
Abstract The 1982 and 2015 eruptions were the first at Wolf volcano, Galapagos Archipelago, with eyewitness accounts and satellite imagery. Both eruptions were characterized by a rapid and intense
4D gravity changes associated with the 2005 eruption of Sierra Negra volcano, Galápagos
Sierra Negra volcano, the most voluminous shield volcano in the Galapagos archipelago and one of the largest basaltic calderas in the world, erupted on October 22, 2005 after more than 25 years of
Caldera resurgence during the 2018 eruption of Sierra Negra volcano, Galápagos Islands
A unique multiparametric dataset is combined to show how the 2018 eruption of Sierra Negra contributed to caldera resurgence, and the mechanisms of eruption in the absence of well-developed rift systems are revealed.
Stress interaction between magma accumulation and trapdoor faulting on Sierra Negra volcano, Galápagos
Abstract Understanding the state of stress within volcanoes and how it changes with active geophysical processes is important to assess when and where magma may propagate to the surface and initiate
Uplift and Seismicity Driven by Magmatic Inflation at Sierra Negra Volcano, Galápagos Islands
Although episodes of surface uplift and elevated seismicity precede many volcanic eruptions, their temporal evolution is often complex, and apparently in contradiction to simple trends predicted by
The Evolution of Galápagos Volcanoes: An Alternative Perspective
The older eastern Galapagos are different in almost every way from the historically active western Galapagos volcanoes. The western Galapagos volcanoes have steep upper slopes and are topped by large
Integrated Petrological and Geophysical Constraints on Magma System Architecture in the Western Galápagos Archipelago: Insights From Wolf Volcano
The 2015 eruption of Wolf volcano was one of the largest eruptions in the Galapagos Islands since the onset of routine satellite-based volcano monitoring. It therefore provides an excellent
Seismicity patterns during a period of inflation at Sierra Negra volcano, Galápagos Ocean Island Chain
Basaltic shield volcanoes of the western Galapagos islands are among the most rapidly deforming volcanoes worldwide, but little was known of the internal structure and brittle deformation processes
Co-eruptive subsidence and post-eruptive uplift associated with the 2011–2012 eruption of Puyehue-Cordón Caulle, Chile, revealed by DInSAR
Abstract The 2011–2012 eruption of the Puyehue-Cordon Caulle volcanic complex, southern Andes (Chile), was associated with complex surface deformation affecting an area of roughly 50 by 50 km. We
Petrogenesis of Alkalic Seamounts on the Galápagos Platform
Abstract In the hotspot-fed Galapagos Archipelago there are transitions between volcano morphology and composition, effective elastic thickness of the crust, and lithospheric thickness in the


Volcanic evolution in the Galápagos: The dissected shield of Volcan Ecuador
[1] Volcan Ecuador, a young, active shield volcano at the northwest tip of Isabela Island, Galapagos, experienced at least one sector collapse event that removed its western half. The compositions of

3) erupted from circumferential vents near the summit. These flows are nearly an order of magnitude smaller in volume than the predominantly aa flows erupted from radial eruptive fissures near the
Physical volcanology and structural development of Sierra Negra volcano, Isabela Island, Galápagos archipelago
Sierra Negra is the most voluminous of the western Galapagos shields and exhibits many unusual morphologic features: extensive lower flank apron, steep upper flanks, a broad summit plateau, a large
1998 Eruption at Volcán Cerro Azul, Galápagos Islands: I. Syn-Eruptive Petrogenesis
The 1998 eruption of Volcán Cerro Azul in the Galápagos Islands produced two intra-caldera vents and a flank vent that erupted more than 1.0×108 m3 of lava. Lava compositions changed notably during
A volcano bursting at the seams: Inflation, faulting, and eruption at Sierra Negra volcano, Galápagos
The results of geodetic monitoring since 2002 at Sierra Negra volcano in the Galapagos Islands show that the filling and pressurization of an ∼2-km-deep sill eventually led to an eruption that began
Widespread uplift and ‘trapdoor’ faulting on Galápagos volcanoes observed with radar interferometry
Displacement maps of volcanoes in the Galápagos Islands, constructed using satellite radar interferometry, are presented to help explain large uplift unaccompanied by eruptive activity at other volcanoes.
Wolf Volcano, Galápagos Archipelago: Melting and Magmatic Evolution at the Margins of a Mantle Plume
Wolf volcano, an active shield volcano on northern Isabela Island in the Galapagos Archipelago, has undergone two major stages of caldera collapse, with a phase of partial caldera refilling between.
The caldera of Volcan Fernandina: a remote sensing study of its structure and recent activity
Air photographs taken in 1946, 1960, and 1982, together with SPOT HVR-1 images obtained in April and October of 1988, are used to characterize recent activity in and around the caldera of Fernandina
Thermal control of basaltic fissure eruptions
As hot, basaltic magma rises in a newly opened dyke during an eruption, it flows through colder crustal rock. The flowing magma advects heat along the dyke; at the same time, heat is conducted out of
Petrology of lavas from Sierra Negra volcano, Isabela Island, Galápagos archipelago
Sierra Negra volcano is a voluminous, active basaltic shield situated in the western Galapagos archipelago, a hotspot-related chain adjacent to the Galapagos spreading center. The volcano has erupted
