This chapter addresses the topic of magma storage - and specifically the question of how long magmas may be stored in the crust before erupting or solidifying at depth - by reviewing the manifold ways in which magma storage times have been quantified. This study complements and expands on earlier reviews by Hawkesworth et al. and Condomines et al. Magma systems representative of all settings are included here, but the focus is on those associated with the continental crust. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
