Abstract

Gas collections were made from a ???900??C vent both by conventional evacuated-bottle/wet-chemical techniques and by manual pumping of flowthrough bottles. The complete analyses suggest an equilibrium assemblage quenched at 1,010??C, about midway between fountain and vent temperatures. I suggest that the very low C S ratio is due to degassing of CO2 during storage of the magma in a shallow reservoir before eruption. The two sampling techniques yielded analytical data in mutual agreement. ?? 1984.
