Beschreibungen

This book offers a high-level summary of shallow magmatic systems (dykes, sills and laccoliths) to support geoscience master and PhD students, scientists and practicing professionals. The product of the LASI (Laccoliths and Sills conference) workshop, it comprises thematic sections written by one or more experts on the respective field. It features reviews concerning the physical properties of magma, geotectonic settings, and the structure of subvolcanic systems, as well as case studies on the best-known systems. The book provides readers a broad and comprehensive understanding of the subvolcanic perspective on pluton growth, which is relevant for mineralogical processes as well as the genesis of mineral deposits.
Introduction.- Physical properties of magma / Behaviour of magma at shallow levels.- Geotectonic settings: magma transport and typical shallow level systems.- Types of shallow level complexes.- Geometry and dimension.- Association with volcanic centres.- Volcanic-plutonic connection.- Structure of subvolcanic systems.- Internal structures.- Textures in the host.- Geophysics and remote sensing.- Modelling emplacement and cooling.- Analog experiments.- Numerical modelling.- Shallow-level magmatic systems and the environment.- Landslides and initiation of eruptions.- Climate change.- Societal aspects of shallow level igneous systems.- Raw materials.- Associated mineralizations.- Hydrogeology.- Shallow level bodies in hydrocarbon fields.- Case studies on shallow level magmatic complexes.- Halle Volcanic Complex.- British Cenozoic Igneous Province.- Elba Island.- Henry Mtns.- Karoo.- Iceland.- Bushveld.
Christoph Breitkreuz CV Born in Berlin in 1955, Christoph Breitkreuz studied geology at the TU Berlin. He completed his PhD at the same university in 1982 with a topic on Mesozoic plutons in the Coastal Cordillera of northern Chile. He completed his postdoctoral degree (habilitation) at the TU Berlin in 1986 with a revision of Paleozoic volcanosedimentary successions in northern Chile.  After a research stay at the University of Kansas (1992-1994), Christoph Breitkreuz received a Heisenberg Fellowship (1995-2000), which he spent at the GFZ Potsdam. This was also the start of his research on Late Paleozoic volcanic and subvolcanic systems in central Europe – a topic that has formed his research activities ever since. He has been a full professor at the TU Bergakademie Freiberg, where he established a Centre for Volcanic Textures with more than 3000 samples, since 2000.  http://tu-freiberg.de/geo/sedi/team/cbreitkreuz Sergio Rocchi CV Full professor at the University of Pisa, head of the Dipartimento di Scienze della Terra. Research activities: Magma emplacement in tabular igneous intrusions and link to ore deposits – Tuscany. Intrusive and shallow-level magmatism in post-collisional settings, Paleozoic – Antarctica, and Neogene – Tuscany. Rift/post-rift/mantle plume magmatism – Antarctica, Senegal and Sicily. Glacial volcanology and drill cores for paleo-environmental evolution – Antarctica. Sediment geochemistry and detrital zircon geochronology – northern Apennines.  He is the author of over 100 publications in peer-reviewed scientific journals.  http://people.unipi.it/sergio_rocchi/
