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 ...
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 ...
