Understanding how magma intrusion controls the location of volcanoes and pre-eruption warning signals is critical to hazard assessment.

Introduction. Magma is transported through the crust in fractures called dykes that cut across rock layers. Dykes are important in all stages in the life of a volcano; they transport magma from depth but may stall during ascent or reach the surface to feed eruptions (see Kavanagh 2018 for a review).
The evolution of volcanism following sector collapse
Dr S Watt, Prof T J Reston

Sector collapses are among the largest volume events to affect volcanic systems, potentially involving the rapid displacement of tens of cubic kilometres of rock.
Geodetic evidence for lateral magmatic connections at Chilean volcanoes

Knowing the location, volume and mobility of eruptible magma stored in the crust is critical for forecasting volcanic eruptions. Volcanic hazards threaten human life, health and livelihoods, so improvements to the way we interpret monitoring datasets, including deformation, have potential for real world impacts.
