Microlite transfer by disaggregation of mafic inclusions following magma mixing at SoufriSre Hills volcano, Montserrat

Abstract:

The Soufrière Hills volcano on Montserrat has for the past 12 years been erupting andesite with basaltic to basaltic-andesite inclusions. The andesite contains a wide variety of phenocryst textures and strongly zoned microlites. Analysis of minor elements in both phenocrysts and microlites allows us to put detailed constraints on their origins. Compositions of clinopyroxene, from overgrowth rims on quartz and orthopyroxene and coarse-grained breakdown rims on hornblende, are identical to thos...
