Mechanism of eruption at Paricutin Volcano, Mexico
Bulletin of the Geological Society of America (August 1948) 59 (8): 711-731

Abstract

Paricutin Volcano (Mexico) is situated on a northeast-southwest zone of weakness, which is reflected in the location of the lava vents and a satellite cone. That the lava rises from considerable depths is shown by inclusions of several rock types not known to crop out anywhere in the vicinity.
