The hot waters emanating from hydrothermal vents are less dense then seawater and rise up above seafloor volcanoes into the ocean above, forming a plume. As the hot waters rise, they pull in surrounding water, becoming diluted and expanded. Within ten minutes or so the water has risen anywhere from 100 to 250 meters or more above the volcano and has pulled in almost 10,000 times its volume in surrounding seawater, spreading the hydrothermal waters into a large cloud or plume, left to drift…

Fig. 4.12 Sketch map of the previous hit Valles next hit/Toledo caldera complex, showing postcaldera rhyolite domes. The stippled pattern represents Toledo-age domes (1.0 to 1.4 myr); the light brown shading indicates previous hit Valles next hit domes that range in age from slightly less than 1 million years to ~100,000 years. Triangles mark the vents of intracaldera volcanoes.

Fig. 5.22 Distribution of eruptive vents in the Coso volcanic field of California. The locations of vents are shown by letters designating the composition of materials erupted: B = basalt, A = andesite, D = dacite, and Rd = rhyodacite. Asterisks denote the location of Late Pliocene and early Pleistocene vents. (Adapted from Duffield et al ., 1980.)

Fig. 4.9 Simplified geologic map of the Creede caldera in Colorado, showing distribution of the Creede Formation—tuffaceous sedimentary rocks that partly filled the annulus (moat) between the resurgent dome and caldera walls. The same zone is partly filled by lava domes and flows erupted after caldera collapse. The Creede
