Water and magmas: insights about the water solution mechanisms in alkali silicate melts from infrared, Raman, and 29 Si solid-state NMR spectroscopies

Le Losq, Charles; Mysen, Bjorn O.; Cody, George


Degassing of water during the ascent of hydrous magma in a volcanic edifice produces dramatic changes in the magma density and viscosity. This can profoundly affect the dynamics of volcanic eruptions. The water exsolution history, in turn, is driven by the water solubility and solution mechanisms in the silicate melt. Previous studies pointed to dissolved water in silicate glasses and melts existing as molecules (H2Omol species) and hydroxyl groups, OH. These latter OH groups commonly are...[Show more]
