Oxygen and sulfur isotopic composition of volcanic sulfate aerosol at the point of emission

Abstract:

Volcanic sulfate aerosol is emitted from the vents of many active volcanoes, but its origin has not yet been explained. We report the first measurements of the isotopic compositions of near-vent volcanic aerosol sulfate and use the combined sulfur and oxygen isotope systematics of the aerosol and magma at Masaya volcano, Nicaragua, to draw preliminary conclusions about the production mechanism of near-source volcanic sulfate. The sulfate aerosol does not display a significant mass-independent...
