Elements: Volcanoes: From Mantle to Surface

February 03, 2017

Volcanoes are the powerhouses of nature that can, within minutes, transform a beautiful mountainscape into a desolate landscape devoid of life. Whether eruptions are mild or catastrophic, volcanoes fascinate and captivate us. But what controls whether a given magma will erupt or stall, and how do processes in one part of the system affect others? Volcano science is advancing rapidly, and improvements in monitoring tools, petrologic tools, and modeling of volcanic processes have greatly improved our understanding of volcanic behavior. This issue brings together contributions exploring volcanic behavior throughout the crustal system.
