  Information - GMPV19 Volatiles and bubbles in magmas

Event Information
Volatiles play a significant role in the evolution of magmatic systems and are the driving force of volcanic eruptions. Recently, many new theoretical approaches, experimental studies, observations on active volcanoes and of igneous rocks and new methods of analysis have become available. The integration of these studies promises to provide us with a better insight into the role of volatiles in magmas and how their exsolution and transport can result in the variety of eruptive styles and gas compositions observed at volcanoes, and in the bubble size distributions found in their products. This session will bring together theoreticians, experimentalists, geophysicists, igneous petrologists and volcanologists to present their latest results on volatiles and their escape from magma systems.
