Unveiling the Secrets of Volcanoes in the Springerville Volcanic Field

The Springerville Volcanic Field (SVF), located in east-central Arizona, erupted between 2.1 million and 300,000 years ago, and erupted over 500 distinct lavas. The volcanic products of the field have been mapped and sampled in great detail, which serves as the basis to unraveling the volcanic history to the field. Several similar volcanic fields pose a great risk to people and towns, but aren’t studied in real time (like monitoring at larger, active volcanoes), making the lessons learned in the SVF invaluable for understanding the nature and hazards associated with this type of volcanism.
