Insights into the kinematics of a volcanic caldera drop: Probabilistic finite-source inversion of the 1996 Bardarbunga, Iceland, earthquake

Fichtner, Andreas; Tkalcic, Hrvoje


The accurate modelling and prediction of volcanic eruptions depends critically on information concerning the interaction between the caldera and the underlying magma chamber. Knowledge concerning the kinematics of a caldera in the course of an eruption is therefore essential. Here we provide detailed seismological constraints on the kinematics of a volcanic caldera drop and the geometry of a caldera ring fault. For this we performed a finite-source inversion of the September 29, 1996...[Show more]
