The newly discovered neogene maar volcano near the Marianske Lazne, western Bohemia.


The Cenozoic volcanic activity in the Bohemian Massif (Central Europe) took place during several periods in Paleogene, Neogene, and also Quaternary. It is distributed over the northern and western part of the Bohemian Massif (Czech Republic, SE Germany, SW Poland) with the highest spatial density within the Eger Rift and smaller amounts of volcanic bodies on the rift shoulder reducing the abundance with increasing distance from the rift (e.g., Ulrych et al., 2011). Diverse magma sources and complex petrogenetic and differentiation processes lead into a wide spectrum of chemical composition of erupted magmas. Variable chemical composition as well as various settings of eruptions lead to many different styles of manifestations of volcanic activity creating many different volcanic land-forms. Despite more than a hundred years of intensive geological studies new researches still alter the view. New data on setting of volcanoes and volcanic complexes in the Bohemian Massif can be provided also by geophysical surveys (e.g., Skacelova et al., 2009; Skacelova et al., 2010; Valenta et al., 2011).

In 1965 the airborne magnetometry was carried out in the western Czech Republic. The measured magnetic field revealed a magnetic anomaly near the village Rajov (Fig. 1), only 5 km NE of the Marianske Lazne. However, this anomaly has remained further unexplored until 2008 when Salansky (2009) realized a ground magnetometric profile across it. He interprets the measured magnetic maxima by presence of a Cenozoic maar volcano and basaltic dykes (Salansky, 2009).

Maar-diatreme volcanoes represent one of the volcanic forms in the Bohemian Massif. The origin of maar-diatreme volcanoes results from explosive interaction between magma and subsurface water. The explosion is caused by shock vaporization of water due to contact with a hot magma. The resulting diatreme is a funnel-shaped crater filled in deep by breccia of original country rock "fluffed up" with the explosion. The upper parts are later on filled with post-eruptive sediments (cf. Lorenz et al., 2003; Lorenz and Kurzslaukis, 2007).

This brief outline of a diatreme formation clearly shows which path the eventual geophysical prospection should take. First of all, the gravity low should be observed when crossing the diatremes--the country rock disintegrated with the explosion has lower densities than the coherent and massive country rock. Moreover, the post-eruptive sediments usually also exhibit lower densities compared with their surroundings. Next, the magmatic dykes feeding the system and penetrating the diatreme have usually increased magnetization compared with the country rocks. Gravity and magnetics anomalies are often combined and interpreted together (Cassidy et al., 2007; Loera et al., 2008; Mrlina et al., 2009; Blaikie et al., 2012). Finally, also the seismic and geoelectrical methods can image the diatreme and magma intrusion based on differences in elastic and electrical properties of country rock and diatreme filling (Emilia et al., 1977; Brunner et al., 1999; Skacelova et al., 2010; Gebhardt et al., 2011; Bolos et al., 2012). However, the last two methods are not used as frequently as gravimetry and magnetometry, mainly due to their limited depth reach (in their most common and affordable configuration for the near-surface geophysics). On the other hand they offer higher spatial resolution and less ambiguity in interpretation compared to potential methods.

Based on above mentioned knowledge and assumptions, we decided to investigate the Rajov magnetic anomaly (see Fig. 1 for location) further. We wanted to extend the one magnetic profile of Salansky to get a 2d distribution of magnetic anomalies and, more importantly, to measure also several gravimetrical profiles (Fig. 2) to add another geophysical method for more reliable interpretation. What is more, the gravity measurements would also enable construction of numerical model to support the interpretation.


The studied locality is located in the Slavkovsky les Highland--a wedge between two grabens: Eger Rift to the north and Cheb-Domazlice graben to the west (e.g., Ulrych et al., 2003, 2011). Volcanic conduits in studied area penetrate complex of predominantly metabasic rocks of the Marianske Lazne Complex (MLC: amphibolites, metagabbros, eclogites, serpentinites, actinolite schists--Stedra et al. 2002) adjacent to high grade gneisses of the Tepla Highland complex to east (Zacek et al., 1993) and Variscan Bor Pluton with granites and diorites to the west (Klominsky et al., 2010). The plutonic rocks are mantled by lower-grade meta-volcanosedimentary Kladska Unit (Kachlik, 1994).

According to the geological map (Fig. 1) the Rajov maar penetrates amphibolites with smaller bodies of eclogites. The densities of amphibolites are reported to be 2960 [+ or -] 80 kg/[m.sup.3] and densities of eclogites varies about 3370 kg/[m.sup.3] (Jacoby and Smilde, 2010). The magnetic susceptibility of amphibolites measured on outcrops in the vicinity of the study area ranges between 300 and 550 x [10.sup.-6] SI and that of eclogites is about 600 x [10.sup.-6] SI.

There is no volcanic rock cropping out in the depression supposed to represent the Rajov maar, but about 1 km south of the maar, the Podhorni vrch Hill rises up. The Podhorni vrch Hill is an erosional remnant of a monogenetic volcano. The erosion has exposed a feeder of olivine nephelinite with remnants of pyroclastic rocks (Cajz, 1992). We interpret the poorly sorted, clast-supported scoria deposits (Fig. 3) with slightly observable periclinal stratification as a remnant of superficial facies of a scoria cone produced by a Strombolian eruption (e.g., Head and Wilson, 1989; Rapprich et al., 2007; Tietz et al., 2011; Buchner and Tietz, 2012). According to the K-Ar data, (Ulrych et al., 2003), the Podhorni vrch Hill is of the Mid Miocene age (12.4 Ma). The volcanic rocks from the Podhorni vrch Hill have the magnetic susceptibility in the range of 20 000 to 24 000 x [10.sup.-6] SI. The density of the olivine nephelinite is very high--about 3100 kg/[m.sup.3] (Ibrmajer and Suk, 1989)

The sedimentary cover in the area of Rajov is mostly of Quaternary age and is of fluvial and colluvial origin with many localities hosting peat. Neogene sediments are documented in the valley. The densities of sediments varies depending on material composition, compaction and water saturation. The compaction of the near-surface sediments is very low and hence densities are also low, usually ranging between 1500 kg/[m.sup.3] for soils and 2200 kg/[m.sup.3] for wet clays (Jacoby and Smilde, 2010). The density of peat could be extremely low, even as low as 1050 kg/[m.sup.3] (Jacoby and Smilde, 2010).


The gravity data were measured along four perpendicular profiles crossing the area of the supposed maar-diatreme volcano. The lengths of the profiles were 1360 m (profile 1), 780 m (profile 2), 600 m (profile 3) and 450 m (profile 4). The station spacing on the profiles 1 and 2 was 30 metres and 50 metres on the profiles 3 and 4. The gravity was measured using the Scintrex CG-5 relative gravity meter. The base station was situated roughly in the centre of the area on the solid ground and was reoccupied every 2-3 hours to correct the measured data for an instrument drift.

The individual gravity readings averaged gravity samples taken during the 60 second intervals and two or three individual gravity readings were usually measured on individual stations. These individual readings were then averaged to make a gravity datum for a station. In case of unfavourable measuring conditions (swampy areas), the number of individual gravity readings was higher and before averaging the outliers were removed.

The topographical survey was carried out using the Leica TC1010 total station. Based on the repeated measurements, the average accuracy in heights was 0.166 m. Thus the estimated uncertainty in gravity data introduced by uncertainties in heights (difference in Bouguer anomalies for a density 2900 kg/[m.sup.3] and the average errors in heights) is [+ or -] 0.031 mGal.

The measured data were, first of all, corrected for the instrument drift based on repeated measurements on the base station. The tidal corrections are applied automatically by the gravity meter and their small residuum is then removed within the instrument drift corrections. From the total number of 97 gravity points 5 points (excluding the base station) were measured twice to determine the precision of measurement. The average error of gravity readings based on repeated measurements was 0.003 mGal. The next step was calculation of free-air and Bouguer anomalies and terrain corrections. The density used for the Bouguer slab was 2900 kg/[m.sup.3], which is an approximate estimated density of the country rock (amphibolites). The terrain corrections were computed on the altimetry grid of the Czech Land Office with a spatial resolution of 5 m. The grid was further recomputed to the spatial resolution of 1 m within the area of survey and its near vicinity. The gravity effect of the terrain is then computed as rectangular prisms on a square grid. The average amplitude of terrain corrections was 0.259 mGal. The error of terrain corrections were not computed since the errors of the DEM are not known. Hence, the overall error of the gravity anomaly is [+ or -] 0.034 mGal (excluding the error of terrain corrections). The map of Bouguer anomalies (Fig. 4) shows that the gravity data are generally increasing from NW to SE. Therefore, the next step was removing the regional field approximated by a plane. Resulting residual gravity field (Fig. 5) clearly shows two gravity lows on the first profile. However, they are very narrow which does not fit the interpretation of Salansky (2009), who proposed a wide diatreme (approximately 600 metres in diameter). Also the difference between its minimum and maximum values is only 1.6 mGal (Fig. 5), which is less than was expected in case of such a large diatreme.


The ground magnetic survey was carried out using the portable proton magnetometer PGM-1 (SatisGeo, Ltd.). The measurement points covered the whole area of the supposed maar-diatreme volcano (Fig. 2). In total 135 magnetic points were measured with accuracy of [+ or -] 1 nT. One of the profiles followed the course of the gravity profile 2 and the measurement points were identical for both methods. The gravity profile 1 could not be used for magnetic measurements due to power lines running nearby. The magnetic data was corrected for daily variations (about 10 nT) by repeated measurements on the base station. The amplitudes of variations were, however, much lower compared to amplitudes of the registered magnetic anomaly.

The measured magnetic field (Fig. 6) shows a narrow positive magnetic anomaly in the centre of the area. The anomaly is elongated on the SW-NE direction and coincides with increased values of the gravity field on the north and west side of the gravity low (Figs. 4 and 5). On its SW part the narrow anomaly broadens and continues beyond the study area.


The residual gravity field (Fig. 5) clearly shows two gravity lows on the first profile. They are very narrow which does not fit the interpretation of Salansky (2009), who proposed wide diatreme (approximately 600 metres in diameter). Also the difference between minimal and maximal gravity values is low--only 1.6 mGal. However, the gravity high separating these two minima correlates with the highest values of the magnetic field within the area (Fig. 6). This magnetic anomaly forms a band in a NS direction and turning eastwards on its north end. The south end of this anomaly points in the direction of the Miocene Podhorni vrch Volcano (Fig. 1). Hence, we could assume a dense coherent mafic magnetic body to be present here.

We have carried out the interpretation using the forward modelling and a trial and error technique. For the forward modelling we have used the Grav2dc code by Gordon Cooper (Cooper 1997, Cooper 2012). This program calculates gravity effects of 2.5d bodies using the Talwani algorithm. Finally we have set up a model that fits well the observed gravity data and is also coherent with geological assumptions (Fig. 7). In contrast to the residual gravity field plotted in Figure 5 we have used different approximation of the regional field for the forward modelling. In the former case, we have approximated the regional field by a plane which we have fitted through the whole dataset. Involving also the anomalous values in the computation of a regional field could seriously bias the result and hence it is usable only for a general overview map like in the case of Figure 5.

For the forward modelling, however, usually more rigorous approach is used where the regional field is fitted only through data not affected by gravity anomalies. In this case this, unfortunately, could not be done for the whole dataset due to low number of gravity points outside of the anomaly. Therefore, only the modelled profile was treated this way.

The modelled maar-diatreme volcano is almost 1000 m in diameter and the depth is also about a kilometre. Three bodies of coherent volcanic rock are located within the maar-diatreme structure. The largest, funnel-shaped body is situated in the lowest part of the diatreme. Another one is a vertical tabular body penetrating diatreme and country rocks. The last one is a horizontal nearly tabular to lens-shaped body in the upper part of the structure. According to the model, the top of the volcanic crater is covered with Neogene to Quaternary sediments and peat layers which is in accordance with geological map (Fig. 1).

The densities used for modelling were as follows: 2900 kg/[m.sup.3] for the country rock amphibolites (and the same density for the Bouguer slab), 2700 kg/[m.sup.3] for the bottom part of the diatreme and 2650 kg/[m.sup.3] for the upper, 3100 kg/[m.sup.3] for the basic coherent volcanic rock (olivine nephelinite)--basic dyke, intrusion and lava in Figure 7, 2000 kg/[m.sup.3] for the Neogene and Quaternary sediments and 1500 kg/[m.sup.3] for the peat.


The low differences in gravity within the crater and off the crater suggest, that the maar-diatreme structure is in significant part filled with a dense material--a coherent volcanic rock. The biggest modelled coherent body in the lower part of the structure could be interpreted in terms of a large intrusion, most likely injected into the brecciated root zone of the maar explosion. The second one seems to be a basic dyke cutting the country rocks NE of the original maar explosion but close enough to penetrate also the uppermost part of the maar-diatreme volcano. The most curious is the third one with no clear connection to a feeding system. This horizontal body could be interpreted as a lava flow. Similar lava flow filling partly the maar crater has been geophysically identified for example in La Crosa de Sant Dalmai maar (Catalonia, Spain--Bolos et al., 2012). The potential source vent of the lava flow flowing into the maar crater is located nearby--it is the Podhorni vrch scoria cone (Fig. 1). We suggest, that the Rajov maar belongs to the Podhorni vrch volcanic system and that this maar represents the first phreato-magmatic explosive event of the Podhorni vrch volcanic system. Later explosive events of the system were of the Strombolian style with a scoria cone and lava flows.

The changes in a volcanic activity are dominantly controlled by changes in degassing patterns, magma ascent rates and amount and inflow of external water (Houghton et al., 1999; Blaikie et al., 2012). Moreover, Houghton (1999) considers the magma flux to be the main influence here. He connects phreatomagmatic activity with a low magma flux during the initial stages of volcanism, where the vents are not open, or with a time of rapid readjustement and maar collapse. Later on, when the vents are open and magma flux higher, the volcanism changes into the Strombolian or Hawaiian style. A similar scenario could take place also here. A schematic diagram of this evolution is shown in Figure 8.

The coherent mafic intrusions more than balance the mass deficit caused by the diatreme breccia. The gravity maximum resulting from the basic intrusions overrides gravity low of the diatreme and explains the unexpectedly low gravity contrast between the diatreme and surroundings mentioned in the Section 3.

The magnetic high measured in the centre of the area (Fig. 6) coincides well with that one measured by Salansky (2009). The amplitude of it exceeds 800 nT in both cases. Salansky also interprets it in a similar way--as a body of Tertiary mafic lava (Samansky, 2009).


Considering results of this research, the volcanic history of the Rajov maar and the Podhorni vrch volcanic system seems to be more complex and linked together than was expected. The interpreted model shows a large maar-diatreme volcano with a crater approximately one kilometre wide and at least one kilometre deep. Several mafic intrusions were modelled within the diatreme. They were most likely emplaced in more than one eruption the topmost one being possibly a lava flow from the nearby Podhorni vrch volcanic system.

The first phreatomagmatic explosion (the Rajov maar) consumed all water available for phreatomagmatic eruptions and subsequent activity took place in Strombolian style building up a scoria cone of the Podhorni vrch volcano and emitting a lava flow, which filled partly the maar crater (Fig. 8).
