    Quartz is a common phase in high-silica igneous rocks and is resistant to post-eruptive alteration, thus offering a reliable record of magmatic processes in silicic magma systems. Here we employ the 75 ka Toba super-eruption as a case study to show ...
  • Pankhurst, Matthew J.; Morgan, Daniel J.; Thordarson, Thorvaldur; Loughlin, Sue C. (Elsevier BV, 2018-07)
    How a volcano has behaved throughout its past is a guide to its future behaviour. Detailed knowledge of what preceded eruptions from specific volcanoes, and how this can be recognised in real-time, are pivotal questions of this field. Here, the physical ...
