Volcanic Plumbing Systems are complex structures that include e.g. magmatic mush, melt pockets, and magma transport channels of various geometries, including dykes and sills. The processes that govern magma accumulation and transport are equally complex, because they occur on a range of time and length scales. Recently, research applying various methods to study plumbing systems has shed light on this complexity. These methods include tools from igneous petrology and geochemistry, structural geology, geodesy, and geophysics, such as field studies, compositional and textural analyses, laboratory experiments, numerical modelling, seismic and surface deformation monitoring and modelling.
We believe that it is the variety of perspectives from these methods that will allow us to fundamentally improve our understanding of volcanic plumbing systems in the future. We therefore invite contributions that highlight insights from one or more disciplines or methods.
Our invited speakers will be Cheryl A. Gansecki, talking about how petrology can be used as a real-time monitoring tool: ‘Petrology as a Volcano-Monitoring Tool: Can Magma Tell Its Story in Time to be Useful?’, and Amy Grace Ryan, talking about ‘Rapid healing of crystal-rich granular materials in volcanic and high-temperature upper-crustal environments: implications for fluid flow and deformation’.
