GMPV7.2: Volcanic & Igneous Plumbing System processes and kinetics: from magma to mush to pluton
Our vision of the architecture of volcanic and igneous plumbing systems (VIPS) has been deeply modified over the last few decades. We have more and more evidence that long lived melt dominated magma bodies are difficult to form and very challenging to maintain. Instead, physical models and geophysical observations suggest the presence of local magma bodies within a larger, transcrustal magmatic system which is dominated by crystals rather than melt. Reconstruction of long-lived magmatic system is a challenging task. Challenge is to connect processes throughout the entire magmatic system, from mantle to crust to the surface (eruption). To advance our understanding of VIPS requires studying both volcanic and plutonic complexes at various scales e.g., from a whole tomographic image of VIPS to the microscopic and potentially atomic scale of a mineral or melt inclusion. We also need to be able to relate physical and chemical properties of crystal-melt-fluid segregation and differentiation, to provide quantitative data on the kinetics of the processes and on the kinematics of magma transfers, and to understand the process of melt migration, accumulation and eruption.
Advancing our studies of these magmatic systems will provide us with better constraints and understanding of volcanic eruptions, and consequently mitigation of volcanic risk, magmatic ore deposits, building of continental crust and Earth evolution. This session aims to bring together scientists working in different fields of igneous and experimental petrology and geochemistry, structural and metamorphic geology, volcano-tectonics, geodesy, geophysics and material sciences. We would like to create a multi-disciplinary session, which will hope will generate a lot of discussion, new collaborations, and interdisciplinary knowledge transfer.
This session is sponsored by the IAVCEI Commission on Volcanic and Igneous Plumbing Systems.
