CRITMAG field areas in Europe cover a diverse range of geologic settings:
- Pluton emplacement and assembly is being studied using case studies in Guernsey and the Italian Alps (Ademello)
- Mt Süphan, Turkey, is a stratovolcano renowned for erupting a variety of lava types. Research here is focussed on the differentiation of magma in the crust.
- Etna, Stromboli and Salina, all Sicilian volcanoes, are being investigated with the aims of resolving the evolution of the Aeolian subduction zone and understanding the degassing of basaltic magmas
