V21C – Evolution of Transcrustal Magma Plumbing Systems, Volcanic Unrest, and Eruption Styles: Chemical, Physical, and Temporal Perspectives
This session aims to bring together cross-disciplinary researchers to probe questions on how do we: 1) investigate transitions in volcanic eruption styles from melt and fluid inclusions, minerals, vesicles and glass in erupted products, 2) better constrain magmatic processes that contribute to eruption explosivity such as volatile outgassing rates, kinetics of magma crystallization and bubble formation, multiphase rheology and magma fragmentation, 3) detect magma bodies and determine their volume and geometry, 4) quantify time-integrated chemical, mechanical, and thermal processes in magma plumbing systems, 5) determine the frequency of magma injections, dykes, and melt extraction events, 6) interrogate minerals, glasses/melts, and volatile emissions, to constrain the timescales and location of magmatic processes, and 7) decipher signs of volcanic unrest (e.g., degassing, tremors, edifice deformation). We invite contributions that use field, analytical, experimental and numerical approaches. This session is sponsored by the IAVCEI Commission on Volcanic and Igneous Plumbing Systems.
