Huber research group published in Nature Online
Former postdoctoral fellow Andrea Parmigiani, Ph.D. candidates Salah Faroughi and Yanqing Su, and associate professor Chris Huber were published in Nature for their paper “Bubble accumulation and its role in the evolution of magma reservoirs in the upper crust”
How did the eruptions of Katmai, Taupo and Santorini grow into a massive blast that spewed fine ash, sulfur and crystal-poor magma into the atmosphere? New research from Georgia Institute of Technology and Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule Zurich (ETH) suggests they occurred due in part to how light vapor bubbles migrate and accumulate in some parts of shallow volcanic chambers.
