Effect of surface solidification on the emplacement of lava flows on a slope
The emplacement dynamics of lava flows on a slope is investigated using theoretical analyses and laboratory experiments for the case where a fixed volume of lava is rapidly released and propagates downhill as a two-dimensional flow. When the lava has no internal yield strength, we identify four dynamical flow regimes that can arise: an inertial slumping regime, a horizontal viscous regime, a sloping viscous regime, and a crust yield strength regime that finally stops the flow. When the lava has...[Show more]
