Abstract

A systematic petrographic and chemical study of chronologically ordered lava samples collected during the 1983 Etna eruption, has shown minor fluctuating variations in crystallinity and chemistry, apparently correlated with variations in the rate of effusion. Comparison with the compositional variations observed in the lavas emitted during the 1971-1983 period, has revealed a repeated evolutional tendency suggesting a small size shallow storage system periodically refilled, as in 1983, by more primitive magma.
