It has been nearly two years since the Trail by Fire crew started preparing for their expedition along the South American Andes, which took place from October 2015 to February 2016 and for an additional month in February to March 2017. The team, Yves Moussallam (University of Cambridge, UK), Ian Schipper (Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand), Nial Peters (University College London, UK), Philipson Bani (Laboratoire Magmas et Volcans, France), Aaron Curtis (NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, USA), Talfan Barnie (Nordic Volcanological Center, Iceland), and João Pedro Lages (Università deli Studie di Palermo, Italy), have published an initial suite of four papers. In this article, Yves Moussallam (recipient of the 2016 DCO Emerging Leader Award) summarizes the team’s findings to date.
- Isotopically (δ13C and δ18O) heavy volcanic plumes from Central Andean volcanoes: a field study
- Magmatic gas percolation through the old lava dome of El Misti volcano
- Sustaining persistent lava lakes: Observations from high-resolution gas measurements at Villarrica volcano, Chile
- Volcanic gas emissions and degassing dynamics at Ubinas and Sabancaya volcanoes; implications for the volatile budget of the central volcanic zone
