      Like earthquakes, the frequency of volcanic eruptions decreases with magnitude (Figure ; Simkin, , Deligne et al., ).Approximately, 80 percent of all documented eruptions in the VOTW have VEIs between 0 and 2 and another 10 percent have VEIs less than or equal to by: 7. The Lesser Antilles volcanic arc is related to subduction of the American plate under the Caribbean plate. The rate of subduction is low, 2–4 cm a −1, and this has been reflected, at least over the past Ma, in relatively low magma production rates (3–5 km 3 Ma −1 km −1 of arc). The arc is segmented; a northern segment trends ° and the Benioff zone dips at 50–60°, whilst Cited by:
