Lack of volatile gradient in the Taupo plinian-ignimbrite transition; evidence from melt inclusion analysis
American Mineralogist (June 1993) 78 (5-6): 612-618

Abstract

Ion and electron microprobe analyses of melt inclusions from the rhyolitic Taupo eruptive sequence of 1800 yr ago indicate that the 35-km (super 3) pre-eruptive magma was homogeneous with respect to volatile, major and trace elements at the time of crystallization and presumably at the time of eruption.
