Epithermal paleosurface evolution in emergent volcanoes: implications for shallow submarine exploration and preservation (Dr J Naden, Dr F Cooper, Dr B Tattitch)

Wills Memorial Building,
Queens Road, Clifton BS8 1RJ
(See a map)



Volcanic-hydrothermal systems are capable of producing surficial products which can be preserved in epithermal-type ore deposits. This type of system can extend into the submarine environment, with contributions from magmatic volatiles, seawater and meteoric water.  This is where anomalously high Au and Ag volcanic massive sulfide (VMS) deposits form e.g. Eskay Creek. Emergent volcanoes e.g. Aegean, provide an on-land laboratory to study how shallow submarine deposits form in their entirety, from the thermal drivers, metal introduction, fluid processes and preservation potential, which will help identify key features in the geological record and on the modern seafloor – enabling better exploration approaches.

I am a NERC GW4+ PhD student hosted full-time at the British Geological Survey in Nottingham.
