Structural controls on volcanism and degassing in the Main Ethiopian Rift

Abstract:

The interactions between magmatism and crustal structure in continental rifts are manifold, and affect both rift dynamics and the populations that live within them. This thesis explores these interactions, focussing on structural controls on volcanism and degassing in the Main Ethiopian Rift, an archetypal continental rift. The rift hosts up to 10 large silicic volcanoes that have been active in the Quaternary, along with extensive basaltic volcanic fields and widespread geothermal activit...
