From below we saw Quizapu, the enormous crater, which looked like a dark and decaying tube.
For our modelling, the melt composition that was used is the 1932 Quizapu Rhyolite (Hildreth and Drake, 1992), specifically sample Q-4 shown in Table 1.
The maximum solubility of the 1932 Quizapu Rhyolite (Hildreth and Drake, 1992) is 3.2 wt.
Modelling of the Quizapu Rhyolite using CONFLOW shows that explosive silicic eruptions are capable of occurring in the deep submarine environment (i.e., at depths much greater than 1000 m) from a shallow (72 MPa) or intermediate level (250 MPa) magma chambers.
