By D. A. Swanson, R. T. Holcomb (auth.), Dr. Jonathan H. Fink (eds.)

This choice of papers relies on a symposium held in 1987 on the Interna­ tional Union of Geology and Geodesy Congress in Vancouver, British Colum­ bia. The Symposium used to be deliberate as a follow-up to a consultation on the 1984 Geo­ logical Society of the United States Annual assembly in Reno, Nevada, which handled the emplacement of silicic lava domes. In either situations, emphasis used to be put on the actual and mechanical instead of chemical features of lava move. The IUGG Symposium consisted of 2 lecture classes, a poster consultation, and dialogue sessions, and had 22 contributors. The contributions to this quantity are all according to papers offered within the a variety of components of the Sym­ posium. the incentive for learning lava stream mechanics is either useful and medical. Scientists and govt companies search to extra successfully expect the dangers linked to energetic lavas. recuperating mineral assets present in lava flows and domes additionally calls for an knowing in their emplacement. From a extra theoretical point of view, petrologists view lava experiences with a view to at once discover the rheologic outcomes of combining crystals, bubbles, and good blocks of state rock with silicate beverages. this data can then be used to constrain approaches happening within the hid conduits, dikes, and chambers that feed flows and domes at the surface.
