Abstract

Pyroclastic studies can help determine the internal plumbing systems and magma release mechanisms of volcanoes, for example where they yield the magma output rate and provide evidence for magma mixing, and fall deposits supply the best means of studying compositionally-zoned magma chambers. They are also important in volcanic hazard studies, where the past pattern of explosive activity is used as a guide to the probable future behaviour of a volcano.
