Magma rose from the bottom of the crust to within 2 kilometers of the surface, says team leader John Pallister, a volcanologist at the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Cascades Volcano Observatory in Vancouver, Wash.
But rather than forming a conventional magma chamber, it forced its way through the rocks in a sheet, known as a dyke, many kilometers wide and as little as a meter thick. The volcanic earthquakes caused by the magma's movement and the subsequent shattering of rocks are very different from those caused by tectonic movements. "They don't have a main shock and aftershock sequence," says Pallister. They also had to assess whether larger earthquakes could occur, but this is unlikely for volcanic earthquakes, Pallister says. In the process, the Saudi authorities deployed an array of seismometers, and U.S .scientists used satellite-based laser altimetry to watch the surface as it bulged upward by as much as half a meter, measuring the uplift to an accuracy of 3 centimeters. "It's just an amazing set of data," Pallister says. "A pathway from the mantle nearly to the surface was established," says Pallister. This, says Pallister, suggests that bits of hot mantle that are upwelling beneath the Red Sea have leaked out under Saudi Arabia.

"Although the Harrat Lunayyir lava field in Saudi Arabia is not near any large urban centers, encroachment by surrounding communities to other geologically active areas emphasizes the need to monitor the seismic and volcanic activity," said John Pallister, U.S. Geological Survey volcanologist and chief of the Volcano Disaster Assistance Program.
Pallister and McCausland, from the Cascade Volcano Observatory in Vancouver, Wash., were asked to assist the Saudi government under the authority of the Volcano Disaster Assistance Program, a joint program of USGS and U.S. Agency for International Development's Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance. Pallister and McCausland were lead authors for an article published this week in the journal Nature Geoscience.
