Carbon dioxide and nonvolatile trace element behavior in magmas at oceanic volcanoes

Deep Carbon Observatory

Illustration of carbon dioxide and nonvolatile trace element behavior in magmas at oceanic volcanoes. Each panel tracks the concentration of CO2 and a nonvolatile trace element during the ascent of magma for three hypothetical cases.

Ratios of carbon dioxide to sulphur dioxide in volcanic degassing

This data-driven visualization was created for a chapter in Deep Carbon: Past to Present under the guidance of Dr. Cynthia Werner. These ratios have a relationship to increased volcanic activity and eruptions.
