Time-resolved insights into eruption progression: contrasting Tajogaite with the Bishop Tuff supereruption

Thursday 7 March 2024, Location TBC 1.00pm-2.00pm (Geology)

Dr Katy J. Chamberlain, University of Liverpool

In this presentation Katy will present and discuss work on the evolution of the 2021 Tajogiate eruption from La Palma through whole rock and mineral specific work, and compare this with the magma chamber zonation tapped during the Bishop Tuff supereruption from mineral specific studies. In these different volcanic eruptions, the importance of a time-resolved eruptive stratigraphy in understanding pre-eruptive magmatic storage is vital, and has useful insights into sampling strategies and studies of ancient volcanic eruptions.
