Volume 30: Volatiles in Magmas
Michael R. Carroll and John R. Holloway, editors

1994, i-xviii + 517 pages. ISBN 0-939950-36-7; ISBN13 978-0-939950-36-2

Volatile components, by which we mean those magma constituents which typically prefer to occur in the gaseous or super-critical fluid state, may influence virtually every aspect of igneous petrology. The study of volatile-bearing systems, both in nature and in the laboratory, has far exceeded the relative abundances of these components in igneous rocks, yet in many ways the words of Bowen (1928) are still broadly applicable:

" ... to many petrologists a volatile component is exactly like a Maxwell demon; it does just what one may wish it to do." (Bowen, 1928, p. 282)

What we hope to show in this volume are some areas of progress in understanding the behavior of magmatic volatiles and their influence on a wide variety of geological phenomena; in doing this it also becomes apparent that there remain many questions outstanding. The range of topics we have tried to cover is broad, going from atomisticscale aspects of volatile solubility mechanisms and attendant effects on melt physical properties, to the chemistry of volcanic gases and the concentrations of volatiles in magmas, to the global geochemical cycles of volatiles. The reader should quickly see that much progress has been made since Bowen voiced his concerns about Maxwell demons, but like much scientific progress, answers to old questions have prompted even greater numbers of new questions.

The Voltiles in Magmas course was organized and transpired at the Napa Valley Sheraton Hotel in California, December 2-4, 1994, just prior to the Fall Meetings of the American Geophysical Union in San Francisco.
