On the ability of rocks to conduct heat in the Lithosphere
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2019)
is best reproduced using the geometric mixing model, but some samples with clear anisotropy mix according to the series or parallel models. However, many high-temperature measurements are clouded by previously unidentified experimental errors, which...
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...
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. ...
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 ...
