Description
Volcanism - the generation and eruption of molten rock from within the earth's interior - is one of the most visible manifestations of plate tectonics. Growth of the earth's crust occurs either when magma is stored and solidified within the crust, or is erupted at the earth's surface. Eruptive activity at subduction zones can be explosive and highly disruptive, and represents an important natural hazard, with implications for life, health and financial stability when it occurs. One of the major challenges facing volcanologists is the accurate forecasting of this eruptive behaviour. Abundant evidence of past volcanic activity shows that large volumes of magma can...
