Crustal evolution leading to successive rhyolitic supereruptions in the Jemez Mountains volcanic field, New Mexico, USA

The magmatic systems that feed supereruptions result from high magma supply from depth that sustains large regions of partial melt in the shallow crust. However, many questions remain around the processes and timescales over which super-sized magmatic systems develop. We present new zircon age, trace elemental and isotopic data from the Jemez Mountains volcanic field (JMVF) to reveal contrasting magmatic processes that led to successive rhyolitic supereruptions at 1.60 and 1.25 Ma. Before the...[Show more]
