Volcanoes are fed by ‘mush’ reservoirs

Volcanoes are not fed by liquid magma formed in large, underground caves called ‘magma’ chambers; instead, they are fed by so-called ‘mush’ reservoirs — areas of mostly solid crystals with magma in the small spaces between the crystals, according to new research from Imperial College London and the University of Bristol, UK.

“We now need to look again at how and why eruptions occur from mush reservoirs,” said Imperial College London’s Professor Matthew Jackson, lead author of the study.
