Project Overview

Petrological studies can inform of the processes and time scales of magma movement and ascent, and thus allow associating them with monitoring unrest signals, and thus better mitigate volcano hazards. This year we made significant progress in linking time scales and monitoring data for Kelut 1990 eruption, and found that crystals mainly record magma ascent rather than intrusion.
