Volcanoes in the southern volcanic zone of the Andes.

Arc volcanoes, a direct consequence of magma generation in subduction zones, are highly hazardous volcanoes, forming long chains of characteristic cone-shape edifices. In this presentation the Andean arc and its volcanoes are explored, focussing on:

  • how magmas are produced,
  • why they predominately behave explosively and
  • how the different segments of the Andean arc affect the behaviour of the volcanoes located on them.

The presentation will also introduce key Andean volcanoes and some relevant eruptions.
