The Importance of Planetary Volcanism and Key Investigations for the Next Decade

Volcanism is a fundamental planetary process. Priorities for the next decade include sampling a diversity of lava compositions (especially from bedrock lava sequences), improving estimations of instantaneous lava and gas fluxes, measuring planetary heat flow, and understanding the pathways by which volcanism enables and supports life.
