Magma reservoir processes: integrating geophysics and geochemistry (co-sponsored by AGU)
Convener: Chiara P Montagna  | Co-Conveners: Mickael Laumonier , Daniele Morgavi , Maurizio Petrelli 

Magma chamber evolution is characterised by a plethora of different
thermo-fluid-dynamical processes such as fractional crystallisation,
host rock assimilation, chamber replenishment, magma rejuvenation and
magma mixing. All of these processes leave marks on the petrology of
erupted products and, through the dynamical response of the surrounding
host rock, on the geophysical records observed at the surface. However,
the connection between surface observations and deep magmatic processes
remains uncertain, and we must rely on indirect measurements.
Experiments and physical modelling may help to define the links between
magma reservoirs evolution and surface observations. In this session we
would like to gather fresh and innovative contributions that tackle the
evolution of magmatic reservoirs from detailed petro-volcanological
studies to large-scale results of geodetic inversions. We look for
contributions focused on field, experimental, and modelling approaches.
Multidisciplinary studies are particularly welcome.
We are happy to have Catherine Annen and Fabio Arzilli contribute as solicited speakers.
