Posted by

Piton de los angeles Fournaise and Karthala are either guard volcanoes within the southwest Indian Ocean. This booklet summarizes the paintings performed on those very energetic basaltic volcanoes. Piton de los angeles Fournaise has a protracted background of medical examine and tracking, with many information accrued in the course of fresh eruptions. it's one among the main studied volcanoes on this planet. The paintings awarded during this monograph contains geological, geophysical, geochemical and petrological points, but additionally reviews on actual geography, ordinary dangers and the sociological and behavioural approaches.'

The Karthala volcano can be much less renowned, however it serves as an attractive comparability to Piton de los angeles Fournaise. even if positioned just about the volcanoes of Hawaii, it differs from them via its extra alkaline magmas and not more widespread job. It was once additionally monitored for greater than 25 years, generating striking eruptions lately.

However, in detail, the magnetic map appears to provide a smoother or more integrated image of the pre- and post-Brunhes-Matuyama reversal formations. 780 Ma blanketed by more recent formations. The thickness of the Brunhes period rocks must be significant in order to create a positive anomaly which overides the generally negative signal created by the bulk of the massif at the altitude of the aeromagnetic survey (3500 m).

In two locations on the submarine flanks, the Etang Salé (ES) and eastern areas, well defined positive and negative, short- to medium wavelength, anomalies extend tens of kilometres offshore (they are easily differentiated from the larger wavelength anomalies created by the oceanic crust, see Fig. 2c in Lénat (2016, Chap. 2). e. not chaotic or brecciated) volcanic constructions. The ES submarine magnetic anomalies (Fig. 2b) are not restricted to the bathymetric ridge observed in this area (Fig. 2), but extend farther offshore (about 38 km) and cover a wider area (about 36 km near the seashore).
