By Patrick Bachelery, Jean-François Lenat, Andrea Di Muro, Laurent Michon

Piton de l. a. Fournaise and Karthala are either guard volcanoes within the southwest Indian Ocean. This ebook summarizes the paintings performed on those very lively basaltic volcanoes. Piton de l. a. Fournaise has an extended heritage of medical examine and tracking, with many facts accumulated in the course of fresh eruptions. it really is one among the main studied volcanoes on this planet. The paintings offered during this monograph comprises geological, geophysical, geochemical and petrological facets, but additionally experiences on actual geography, traditional dangers and the sociological and behavioural approaches.'

The Karthala volcano might be much less popular, however it serves as an enticing comparability to Piton de los angeles Fournaise. even though located on the subject of the volcanoes of Hawaii, it differs from them via its extra alkaline magmas and not more widespread task. It used to be additionally monitored for greater than 25 years, generating remarkable eruptions in contemporary years.

They have built four huge submarine bulges separated by submarine canyons offshore of the main rivers. The submarine bulges are essentially built of mass wasting products and sediments. The island is surrounded by a belt of hyaloclastites and pillow lavas. A few volcanic constructional features (cones, eroded piles of lava flows) have been found on the submarine flanks, with the majority being located close to the coast in continuation of the on land southwest and northeast rift zones of Piton de la Fournaise.
