Piton de l. a. Fournaise and Karthala are either safeguard volcanoes within the southwest Indian Ocean. This e-book summarizes the paintings performed on those very lively basaltic volcanoes. Piton de los angeles Fournaise has a protracted heritage of clinical study and tracking, with many info amassed in the course of fresh eruptions. it truly is one in every of the main studied volcanoes on this planet. The paintings offered during this monograph comprises geological, geophysical, geochemical and petrological points, but in addition reviews on actual geography, usual dangers and the sociological and behavioural approaches.'

The Karthala volcano can be much less popular, however it serves as an attractive comparability to Piton de l. a. Fournaise. even supposing located with regards to the volcanoes of Hawaii, it differs from them through its extra alkaline magmas and not more widespread task. It was once additionally monitored for greater than 25 years, generating impressive eruptions in contemporary years.

From Gailler and Lénat (2012) 38 erosion (however, the absence of centripetal dipping of the various formations around the complex precludes significant subsidence of the dense body). The general shape of the dense complex model is that of a flattened dome culminating in the center of Piton des Neiges. Beneath the central area it rises to elevations significantly higher than that of the bottom of the Cirques, and therefore well above the observed outcrops of gabbro.
