Book Title: Modeling Volcanic Processes: The Physics and Mathematics of Volcanism

Author: Fagents, Craig, and Lopes (editors)

Book Description:

 Mitigating volcanic hazards requires knowledge of the physical processes working within magmatic systems. We investigate magmatic systems through the collection and analysis of geophysical and geochemical observations. Linking these observations to magmatic processes is crucial to improving our understanding of these systems and hazard mitigation. This book is a good resource for the physics and mathematic principles behind some of key processes governing magmatic systems.
