Volcanic seismicity

Seismicity at volcanoes is generated by processes happening at depth in the volcanic system. Our recent work looking at low frequency, long period ('LP') seismicity at Tungurahua volcano, Ecuador has provided new insights in to the mechanisms of magma and gas ascent in the volcanic conduit.
