Coalstoun Lakes volcanic field – subsurface lava flow and aquifer mapping

This project is to assist a current MPhil project investigating the physical volcanology and evolution of the Coalstoun Lakes Volcanic Field and Barambah Creek lava flow between Gayndah and Biggenden in southeast Queensland.The volcanic eruptions were anomalously young (~600,000 years old) and the volcanic field now supports a valuable local agricultural industry. Groundwater is a valuable resource to support the agricultural industry. Lava fields can have high permeability and act as important aquifers.The aim of this project is to make …

Exploding shallow marine volcanoes: investigating the petrology of the 2019 pumice raft-producing eruption from Volcano 0403-091, Tonga

More than 21,000 km of submarine volcanoes front subduction zones, many of which lie in shallow water close to inhabited areas. Eruptions at these volcanoes can be explosive and may have significant impacts on nearby communities, or generate pumice rafts that prolong impact at remote locations. For the first time, samples of a shallow marine explosive eruption have been collected from the buoyant pumice raft and from the seafloor at the vent of Volcano 0403-091, Tonga.
