What causes some eruptions to be more explosive than others? Is it the total driving gas fuel, or how fast the gas escapes? This talk examines both the volatile content and the speed of magma ascent immediately prior to eruption. Chemical zonation preserved inside glass pockets and crystals provides some of the fastest clocks in geology. These timescales of chemical diffusion operate over minutes to hours in the run-up to eruption.
