9 In this summary of hydrovolc anic experiments, four basic i nteraction phenomena, consi sting of melt fountaining, unsteady blasts, steady production of steam a nd ejecta, and the nonexplosi ve quenching of melt into globular shapes (blo bs), are correlated to volcanic activities and the water:melt mass ratio (Rm ).

10 Scaled kinetic energy relative to the initial melt thermal energy is shown as a function of water:magma mass ratio. Ranges are indicated for Strombolian, Surtseyan (hydrovolcanic), and submarine activity as well as for corresponding landform and deposit bedforms. (Adapted from Wohletz and McQueen, 1984.)
