Abstract

The major magmatic volatile components—H2O, CO2, S, Cl, and F— play an important role in the formation, evolution, and eruption of magma. Knowledge of magmatic concentrations and fluxes of these volatiles is thus important for understanding explosive eruptive behavior of volcanoes, recycling of volatiles in subduction zones, formation of magmatic-hydrothermal ore deposits, fluxes of volcanic gases to Earth’s atmosphere, and potential climatic impacts of large volcanic eruptions. Over the past 30 years, new analytical techniques for measuring volatiles in melt inclusions and glasses from volcanic rocks and new developments in remote sensing technology used for quantifying volcanic emissions have led to major advances in our understanding of volatiles in magmatic systems and their fluxes from Earth’s mantle to the crust and hydrosphere.
