Formation of channelized lava flows on an unconfined slope
The formation of channelized lava flows on a wide uniform slope is investigated both theoretically and experimentally. When a lava is released at a constant flow rate from a point source, we predict that it flows both down and across the slope at the same rate in a early time regime before undergoing a transition to a long-time regime where down-slope flow is faster than lateral flow. Eventually, the lateral flow is stopped by the strength of the growing surface crust, and the flow then travels...[Show more]
