Monogenetic volcanoes are the most common volcanic manifestation on Earth and occur in all tectonic settings. They are now accepted to be highly complex, small magmatic systems, and display diversity in magma compositions, magma transport and storage, eruption styles, eruption longevity, and landforms. These volcanoes, and their diverse characteristics and processes, can be studied using a wide range of geological tools, including field mapping, geophysical methods, geochemical and textural characterization of eruptive products, and analog and small-scale experiments. This session groups all strands of monogenetic research that elucidate the processes leading to monogenetic eruptions.
We welcome contributions from a range of sub-disciplines focused on either case studies of individual centers or comparative studies across/within volcanic fields. Themes for discussion in this session include: 1) Monogenetic interactions with their geological environment (including tectonic and environmental); 2) Monogenetic landform diversity; 3) Insights into the plumbing systems of monogenetic volcanoes (magma transport and storage); 4) Pre-eruptive magma evolution (including degassing, crystallization, AFC processes); 5) Monogenetic eruption styles and diversity (including interactions with external water); 6) Monogeneticism and poligeneticism; and 7) Monogenetic eruption hazards.
