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 ...
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...
Igneous intrusions and thermal evolution in the Raton Basin, CO-NM: contact metamorphism and coal-bed methane generation
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2006)
Tertiary mafic dikes and sills intrude coal-bearing formations of the Raton Basin. This study investigates the role of intrusions in generating methane from coal. Coal samples at four different outcrops were analyzed by ...
The effects of volatiles on the viscosity and heat capacity of calc-alkaline basaltic and basaltic andesite liquids
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2014)
Calc-alkaline basaltic magmas are volumetrically important at continental and island volcanic arcs, yet their thermal and physical properties are poorly described. These basaltic magmas are characteristically hydrous, and ...
