Copahue Volcano (Active Volcanoes of the World)

This e-book offers a complete description of the volcanological, petrological and geochemical gains of the Copahue volcano, situated on the border among Argentina and Chile. medical reviews are constrained for this volcanic approach, because of its distant position and tough entry in iciness. in spite of the fact that, Copahue is without doubt one of the so much lively volcanic structures within the southern Andes. tracking the volcano's task is of utter value, because it presents technique of lifestyles for the within sight village of an analogous identify, web hosting the world's highest-located hot-springs hotel.

This book's target is to give the present tracking actions, and to explain destiny examine courses which are deliberate so as to mitigate volcanic risks. particular recognition is for this reason dedicated to the social and business actions on the subject of the volcano, comparable to future health remedies and geothermal strength exploitation.

In a unique part, the Copahue volcano is gifted as a terrestrial glossy analog for early-Earth and Mars environments.

10a) was capable of inducing static normal stress changes on the Copahue magma pathway (Fig. 10b). 6 at a distance of about 11 km from the volcano. gov) and the kinematics was dextral strike-slip (Fig. 10a). Results of the numerical modelling carried out considering different dip angles of the N60 °E-striking magma pathway suggest that such surface suffered a normal stress reduction when vertical or subvertical, SE-dipping. A subvertical NW-dipping pathway is instead sometimes affected by normal stress increase with depth.

This trend results parallel to a regional one that is affecting the northern border of Copahue and shows its morphological expression also in the Caviahue lake and at the Copahue pass (Fig. 4a). In addition, close to the Copahue village, in the large crateric depression called Anfiteatro, two N120 °E-aligned lava domes are emplaced. The ENE-WSW-oriented structures show a more complex trend but, at the same time, they testify to the presence of more recent activity, with open fractures, soil displacement, etc (Figs.
