Rheological and morphological evolution of basaltic lava flows
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2018)
question of how pre-existing topography controls lava flow system structure in volume-limited flows (Soldati et al., accepted). I concluded that a steep slope results in a single, stable channel, whereas a gentle slope results in an unstable, braided...
On the ability of rocks to conduct heat in the Lithosphere
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2019)
This work focuses on creating a model for the conductive thermal transport properties of rocks using measured thermal diffusivity (D) with the Laser Flash Analysis (LFA) method, which eliminates common errors associated ...
Flow and heat transfer properties of Mono Craters rhyolites : effects of temperature, water content, and crystallinity
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2008)
The nature of volcanic processes, including rate of magma ascent, exsolution of volatiles, eruption style, and flow distance, is highly dependent on the viscosity of the associated magma and its ability to transfer heat. ...
Spatial, temporal, and petrogenetic relationships of basaltic and lamprophyric dikes and sills of the Raton Basin, southern Colorado and northern New Mexico
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2005)
[ACCESS RESTRICTED TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI AT AUTHOR'S REQUEST.] Alkali basalts and lamprophyres commonly occur as sheet intrusions along the flanks of continental rifts. The Raton Basin, on the eastern shoulder of the Rio Grande rift, is host...
