Article first published online: 13 OCT 2012 | DOI: 10.1029/2012GL053518

Key Points

  • Seismicity propagates downwards during eruption; swarms precede eruptive surges
  • Melt from depth is mobilized by depressurization of the shallow plumbing system
  • Modeling of elastic sills supports our proposed mechanism
