Crustal and uppermost mantle structure variation beneath La R?union hotspot track

Fontaine, Fabrice R.; Barruol, G.; Tkalčić, Hrvoje; Wolbern, Ingo; Rumpker, Georg; Bodin, T.; Haugmard, Meric


The Piton de la Fournaise basaltic volcano, on La Réunion Island in the western Indian Ocean, is one of the most active volcanoes in the world. This volcano is classically considered as the surface expression of an upwelling mantle plume and its activity is continuously monitored, providing detailed information on its superficial dynamics and on the edifice structure. Deeper crustal and upper mantle structure under La Réunion Island is surprisingly poorly constrained, motivating this study. We...[Show more]
